#Giving4Meals

October 16th, 2017

Location: 343 Church Lane Los Angeles CA 90049
Duration: Multiple Days
First Day : Oct 16, 2017
Last Day: Nov 28, 2017



Meals on Wheels of West Los Angeles is a non-profit, volunteer community service organization that has been providing nutritious meals and friendship to individuals who are unable to plan, shop, or prepare meals for themselves due to illness, disability, or advanced age since 1976.

Monday through Friday, our volunteers deliver a hot midday meal and a cold supper to elderly and disabled individuals living in the west LA area. We deliver over 40,000 meals a year.

Our volunteers visit daily with elderly and disabled individuals. They serve as a critical link between that person and his/her family, loved ones, and neighbors. By giving their time as well as the use of their vehicles, our volunteers help ease any loneliness or isolation a client may feel.

Instant gratification is our reward when the door opens. If these meals were not delivered, our clients would not be able to live at home. Our clients are asked to pay $6.00 a day for the two meals. This fee only partially covers our costs, however, no one is turned away because of lack of ability to pay.

Time Details

One of the best ways to get involved is in your own community is to join Meals of Wheels West LA this year in #GivingTuesday. A global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving. Please share #Giving4Meals on your social media and come volunteer for the Thanksgiving season to help deliver nutritious meals to individuals and homebound seniors who are unable to plan, shop, or prepare meals for themselves due to illness, disability, or advanced age.
