Mission Statement

Meals on Wheels San Francisco and its volunteers provide seniors what they need to live independent and dignified lives -- nutritious meals, professional social work and a friendly visitor. Our network of drivers, social workers, nutritionists, community partners, volunteers, donors, and advocates are a formidable force against senior neglect and malnutrition. Meals on Wheels San Francisco believes in delivering more than a meal - we are nourishing the whole person.

Description

Founded in 1970, MOWSF is a local, independent non-profit organization. MOWSF exists to alleviate the food insecurity and loneliness experienced by seniors who want to stay in their own homes but cannot shop or prepare meals for themselves. Our services are geared towards those with the greatest physical, social and economic need. The seniors we serve are frail, have limited ability to purchase or prepare meals, and have little or no support from family or caregivers. All of our clients are physically challenged due to a variety of conditions such as heart disease, cancer, vision loss, arthritis, and diabetes. They are also confronted with the anxiety that the cost of living in San Francisco could outweigh their limited income.

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.
