Meals on Wheels of the Monterey Peninsula

Mission

Our mission is to empower seniors, disabled adults, and veterans to remain independent by nourishing their bodies, minds, and spirits to drive out hunger and isolation in our region.

The Big Idea

Meals on Wheels of the Monterey Peninsula is addressing challenges around food insecurity for homebound seniors, disabled adults, and veterans in our communities. Help us counter rising food and fuel costs for the Meals AND the Wheels.

With a more than 94% increase in demand for our Home Delivered Meals program in the past two years, Meals on Wheels of the Monterey Peninsula is setting out on a journey to open a second commercial kitchen to help us drive out hunger and isolation in our region.

Increasing our meal capacity to 10,000 per day will help us deliver more meals to more people than ever before in our 50-year history. Support Meals on Wheels of the Monterey Peninsula today - together we can deliver!

You are saving us. I am recovering from throat cancer and needing a knee replacement. Hard to cook in a walker. Husband is 89 and under an oncologist's care for returning kidney cancer. It's so good to know there is always something to eat, especially when we are tired. I think MOW is the most important senior service. As one who gratefully receives a bountiful "Meals on Wheels" - I thank you exceedingly from the bottom of my heart. The food is much appreciated and very well prepared. I thank you and nominate you as the HERO OF THE DAY who plans the menu and those too who deliver it so cheerfully! How blessed are we!
