Peninsula Volunteers’ Meals on Wheels
Meals on Wheels delivers hot, nutritionally balanced, healthy meals to homebound seniors and disabled adults throughout South San Mateo County, and to seniors discharged from Sequoia and Peninsula Hospitals in several San Mateo County cities.
Recipients are either unable to shop or cook for themselves on a temporary or permanent basis. Along with the Monday through Friday meal delivery,the drivers make a personal safety check on the recipients.
