​Five Cities MEALS ON WHEELS

History


Five Cities Meals on Wheels supports the community with hot, well balanced meals.  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 40 years ago.  Since that time,  we have continuously prepared and delivered meals to the disabled, ill or homebound residents.   We do not receive federal or state funding and exist through the generosity of donors, clients, and grants from local government, local business, and organizations.


Five Cities Meals on Wheels operates with a volunteer board of directors and three part-time staff members, along with approximately 35 volunteers who deliver our meals and assist us in our kitchen.  Many of our volunteers have been with us for many years and some volunteers help more than one day per week.   

The goal of our service is to provide  our homebound neighbors with a nutritious meal and a daily visit.

Helping the community by helping individuals is our mission.
