Delivering Meals, Nurturing Hearts & Nourishing Home bound Seniors
Meals on Wheels of the Salinas Valley is an essential service serving the most vulnerable and forgotten members of our community. Meals on Wheels continues to enhance their home-delivered meal program for seniors, with successful programs such as Art and About, through which musicians accompany volunteers on their meal delivery route to perform and serenade—truly moving for clients who may be isolated. In 2019, the organization launched a pilot program to serve locally prepared meals by their friends at Meals on Wheels of the Monterey Peninsula. It was a success, and now all meals are prepared by their neighbor agency. They also provide PetMeals in collaboration with the SPCA of Monterey County, delivering pet food to clients who need it. The nonprofit is raising funds to purchase a van/suv for their Big Wheels Keep on Rollin program.
Without Meals on Wheels, I don’t know what I would do. I don’t drive, and I have difficulty walking.
