San Pedro Meals on Wheels, Inc., was founded in 1972 by Church Women United of the First Presbyterian & First Methodist Churches of San Pedro. Today, many members of the San Pedro and other local communities volunteer their services. We rent office and kitchen facilities at the First Pres. San Pedro Church in Weymouth corners.
San Pedro Meals on Wheels, Inc., is a not-for-profit corporation, community based, and non sectarian. It is operated by a Board of Directors, comprised of civic-minded volunteers and business leaders in our community. Our concept of delivering nutritious, hot meals to those in need originated in England during World War II, and has since spread to major cities throughout the United States and world wide.
Since 1972, nearly 1,500,000 quality meals have been served by San Pedro Meals on Wheels. The cost of delivery is only $7.50 per day but this amount doesn’t cover the full cost, which is made up by contributions from individuals and organizations.
There is a possibility that LA County will partner with San Pedro Meals on Wheels to expand their services to others who’s health would be compromised if they ventured out of their homes so they are looking for additional volunteers to help.
If you know of people that who are ready, willing and able to volunteer, please complete the Volunteer Application Form below and forward it to the Meals on Wheels Office.
This is still very tentative but if the forms are in place, the expansion of the program can take place rapidly.
