Help Meals on Wheels

Meals on Wheels delivery

Lakewood Meals on Wheels is a non-profit, volunteer-based organization. The program was started in 1975 by Soroptimist International of Lakewood/Long Beach under the guidance of the City of Lakewood. 

The Lakewood Meals on Wheels Mission Statement is: To provide healthful, high quality home delivered meals to homebound residents allowing them to maintain their independence and dignity.

How you can help

  • Help a neighbor in need of services.  Many clients are homebound due to illness, age or disability. The volunteer delivering meals is often the only friendly, caring face they see all day. 
  • Volunteer. We can always use an extra pair of hands. Read our FAQ for details. 
  • You can help financially, too.  Lakewood Meals on Wheels is sponsored by many private contributors as well as Soroptimist International of Lakewood/Long Beach, Project Shepherd, and the City of Lakewood. You can make a tax-deductible donation online.
  • Your business or group can sponsor meals for those who can't afford it by becoming a "Good Neighbor Sponsor."
