BRINGING PEOPLE TOGETHER TO HELP SENIORS THRIVE
DELIVERING MORE THAN A MEAL
Our vibrant San Diego community can be characterized by its resilience, by its cultural diversity, by a strong U.S. military history and presence, by some of the top universities and research institutes in the world, and by an ever growing and dynamic senior population. People flock here to retire and spend the best years of their lives. As a third generation San Diegan, and like many of my friends and family members, I aspire to grow old and to do so with grace and dignity. And I aspire to do so in this beautiful community we call home.
Our mission is to empower seniors and veterans to remain independent by nourishing their bodies, minds, and spirits.
2021-2023 Strategic Plan
Each year, MOWSDC delivers over 650,000 nutritious meals with friendly visits to older San Diegans, helping them stay in their homes, where they want to be. As members in good standing with Meals on Wheels America (MOWA) and Meals on Wheels California (MOWCA), our organization advocates for issues that impact the health, wellness, and independence of San Diegans who are 60 or older, their pets, veterans with disabilities of any age, and their caregivers.
