The Pacifica Meals on Wheels program provides meals to homebound individuals age 60 and older. Eligibility is based on residency 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 home-delivered meal provides one-third of daily nutritional requirements. Meals are prepared from scratch in the kitchen at the Pacifica Community Center. Ready-to-eat meals are delivered to 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.

To apply for Meals on Wheels service, please call Ann Cooney, Meals on Wheels Coordinator, at 650-738-7350. The Meals on Wheels Coordinator will make an appointment to visit the applicant in their home shortly before or after they begin receiving meals. The Coordinator will discuss health conditions and living situations and provide information about other applicable services that are available.
