Client, Volunteer and Dog

Thank you so much for your interest in volunteering with us at Meals on Wheels West! We deliver Meals to those who are home-bound, including seniors, veterans, formerly homeless people and recovering hospital or rehab patients, in Santa Monica, Venice, Pacific Palisades, Marina Del Rey and parts of Malibu. There is Hidden Hunger in even the most affluent of areas. We deliver hot meals and a warm smile to those who are in need Monday through Friday from 10:30 am to 1:00 pm. We are often the only people they see all day.

By joining our community to volunteer once a week, once a month, or even once a year you can make a huge difference in the fight against isolation, hunger, and loneliness and help keep people in their homes. Strong relationships are formed and the benefits of volunteering are enormous.

We have a simple 4 step process to becoming a volunteer.
