History


Five Cities Meals on Wheels supports the community by delivering hot nutritious meals, compassionate connections, and a watchful caring eye on the health and safety of our homebound neighbors.  We serve households in Arroyo Grande, Grover Beach, Oceano, Pismo Beach, and Shell Beach.


Over the years, we've helped thousands of residents within the Five Cities  remain in their homes and maintain independence.  We do this with a small, dedicated group of volunteers who cheerfully give their time and resources in the preparation and distribution of meals. 


We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded 43 years ago.  Since that time,  we have continuously prepared and delivered meals to the disabled, ill or homebound residents.   We rely heavily on client contributions and the generosity of donors, clients, and grants from local government, local businesses, and organizations.


Five Cities Meals on Wheels operates with a volunteer board of directors and five part-time staff members, along with approximately 37 volunteers who deliver our meals and assist us in our kitchen.  Many of our volunteers have been with us for several years and some volunteer more than one day per week.   

Helping the community by helping individuals is our mission.
