Over 50 Years
Meals on Wheels Orange County nourishes the wellness, purpose and dignity of older adults and their families in our community. For over 50 years we have worked together in homes and in the community to erase hunger and loneliness for impoverished seniors. We have seen tens of thousands of older adults through their daily life challenges as they strive to live independently.
The Meals on Wheels Orange County Continuum of Care is our model of providing multiple types of programs and services so older adults can live independently in Orange County by matching their support services to their personal level of need.
Meals on Wheels Orange County is one of the largest nonprofit senior nutrition programs in California and in the United States. Our Meals on Wheels program is one of Meals on Wheels Orange County’s flagship nutrition programs. Also known as Home Delivered Meals, the program is for homebound and frail older adults who can no longer shop or cook for themselves. Meals on Wheels clients receive breakfast, lunch and dinner, five days a week. The program is funded in part by the Older Americans Act (Title III grants).

This program is funded in part by the Older Americans Act (Title III grants). Participating adults report:
