Mission Statement

Meals On Wheels of San Francisco and its volunteers provide seniors what they need to live independent and dignified lives -- nutritious meals, professional social work, and friendly human contact.


Meals on Wheels was started in 1970 by a group of volunteers who worked out of local kitchens to prepare and deliver meals to their frail, homebound neighbors. As the need for this service outstripped the volunteers' capacity to provide for it, professional drivers, social workers and administrative staff were hired, and meals were prepared by a hospital nutrition staff and later by a corporate caterer. Today we serve more than 3,000 seniors, making Meals on Wheels San Francisco's largest provider of home delivered meals to the elderly. Volunteers play a key role in our service, providing many seniors with personal assistance and emotional support.

Would you recommend Meals On Wheels of San Francisco, Inc.?

by Alex H. from San Francisco, CA (May 31, 2008)
MOW San Francisco is great. I've delivered holiday gifts and worked at the Friday meals and both events were well organized and fun. Linda M is a great coordinator. All the volunteers are fun to work with. If you're looking to get involved in SF, this is a great place.
