Delivering So Much More Than a Meal

Healthy eating is the very foundation of good health, a strong immune system, feeling good and managing health conditions, but it takes more to live with independence and dignity.  And that’s why Meals on Wheels Orange County offers so much more than a meal.  Our caring volunteers also bring a smile and a friendly chat while making sure all is well or that, in case of an emergency or problem, medics will be called and families are notified.  We deliver Meals on Wheels in these cities in Central & North Orange County:

Buena Park
Costa Mesa
Fountain Valley
Garden Grove
Huntington Beach
Santa Ana
Seal Beach
