The Pacifica Meals on Wheels program provides meals to individuals age 60 and older living at home who are unable to prepare their own meals. Eligibility is based on residence in Pacifica and an inability to prepare meals or obtain adequate meals. Meals on Wheels can be provided during short-term convalescence or long-term disability.
Each meal provides one-third of daily nutritional requirements. Meals are prepared in the kitchen at the Pacifica Community Center. Ready-to-eat meals are delivered at the door by a volunteer Monday through Friday between the hours of 10:45am and 12:30pm. A suggested donation of $3.50 per meal is appreciated for those 60 years and older. No eligible individual shall be denied participation because of failure or inability to contribute.
