Meals on Wheels San Diego County invites you to join us for our Jungle Jamboree! This event hosts hundreds of Meals on Wheels supporters for a magical night of fabulous chef challenges, auctions, and dancing – all to raise awareness and much needed funds for the clients we serve daily. We invite you to partner with Meals on Wheels San Diego County for this event to ensure we can continue to serve the mental and physical health of seniors across San Diego County for years to come.
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.
