A friendly visit and a nutritious meal helps support independence for vulnerable elders and disabled residents. Our drivers check in on the wellbeing of isolated elders, ensuring they receive referrals to other needed services.
More than a meal, Meals on Wheels provides a community. Our five senior dining sites located in Ben Lomond, Live Oak, Santa Cruz, Scotts Valley, and Watsonville offer daily hot meals to adults ages 60 and up.
“I'm retired, but before that I was a teacher, a welfare worker, an editor of a music magazine, and even a cabbie. Thirty-five years ago I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. Now I'm really disabled, not walking... MS is no joy. If it weren't for Meals on Wheels, I'd be in big trouble. I'm so glad that we found each other. You guys saved me.”
