We help people in need, but also need your help.

Together, we are creating a better way to deal with hunger.

From humble beginnings in 1960 with a few women deciding to deliver meals to their elderly neighbors, to serving over 600,000 meals throughout the entire county, Meals on Wheels is devoted to the health, safety, and well-being of San Diego seniors.

Sometimes the Real Hunger Is for Human Connection


Make sure our seniors are not forgotten. Give now to help them!


We consider our volunteers to be our greatest asset and need your help.

Meals on Wheels is the only agency providing meals for 7 days a week, including holidays. Additionally, we cover the entire county, including delivery into the over 3,049 square miles of rural and unincorporated areas. Meals on Wheels San Diego County subsidizes 60% of the costs for meals, delivery, and other services provided, regardless of a senior’s ability to pay.


Distributing home-delivered meals and safety checks could not be accomplished without the help of our very large and caring volunteer workforce who deliver meals with a hug and a smile and ensure our homebound seniors are OK. Frequently the volunteer may be the only person the senior sees all day, providing human contact and a safety net, particularly for those seniors living alone. Lives are saved nearly every week as a result of acquiring the proper emergency personnel for someone who has fallen, had a stroke, or is simply in need of additional resources.
