Getting Started

1. Client Application Form (PDF)
To start we need you to complete and return to us your completed Application Form or we can help you do that over the phone. Some of the information you’ll provide includes:

  • Your address and special needs

  • Doctor’s contact information

  • Two emergency contacts


You are the lifeline of our organization … The Wheels!

Without the volunteers performing the home delivery of two meals a day, our homebound neighbors would be malnourished and isolated. Often our volunteers are the only person that they get to see or talk to all day. With two meals, a daily visit and a reassuring phone call, our homebound neighbors are able to remain in their own homes, well nourished and living independently.

Volunteer opportunities for meal delivery

Monday through Friday between 9:45 am – 12:30pm.

Volunteers utilize their own cars without compensation, however, it is not mandatory that you have a vehicle. We always maintain a driver and navigator/delivery person – 2 people in a car.

To become a volunteer for meal delivery we ask that you to come to the office and fill out a "Volunteer Registration Card."

We are very flexible and are grateful for whatever you are able to offer us. You let us know when you are able to volunteer and we’ll schedule you accordingly. Volunteers schedules range from once a week, to twice a week, to every week, to every month, to those individuals who prefer to be on-call.

If you have any questions, please call Elaine or Linda 562 698-2750

Linda Kays Retirement Celebration

A message from Steve Castellanos

On September 15th, our group was invited to the home of fellow volunteer and board member, Mary Torres so that we could celebrate the time that Linda Kays devoted to Meals on Wheels. While I personally was not able to spend as much time there as I would have preferred and see all those who attended, I must say that the group was pretty well-represented, including a visit from our Past President Laurie O’Brien. The refreshments and snacks served were also very well-represented and delicious! A good time was had for sure! President Pigott presented Linda with a beautiful gift for her yard that I’m sure will make her think of us, as she thanked her for her years of service with us, and once again, we say “Thank You Linda!!” Special thanks also go to Mary Torres, who hosted us and opened the beautiful home that she and her late husband and fellow volunteer Richard “Dick” Torres have created, and which she was very happy to show to us. Speaking for Linda, I’m certain that I can say for her; “Thanks for the memories.” I’m sure she felt pretty special indeed.
