For over 55 years, Meals-on-Wheels Greater San Diego, Inc. has contributed to the overall well-being of seniors by providing regular nutrition and daily contact with a caring volunteer. The impact this service has in the community is profound. Often family members, neighbors and others put themselves at risk in order to care for a senior. A son or daughter may have to consider leaving their job in order to care for an elderly parent. An elderly woman may struggle to care for her husband, while her own health deteriorates. The daily delivery of a meal from a caring volunteer becomes part of the system of support that not only provides for a senior’s independence and well-being, but compliments their entire support network.
