About St. Vincent Meals on Wheels: The mission of St. Vincent Meals on Wheels is to prepare and deliver nutritious meals to homebound seniors and other vulnerable residents across Los Angeles. We serve anyone in need who lives within our service area, regardless of age, illness, disability, race, religion or ability to pay.
Most of our clients are too frail or ill to buy or prepare simple meals. Many struggle to live on small fixed incomes that fall below the poverty level. We are especially committed to meeting their needs.
Good nutrition and daily home visits improve the health and dignity of our clients, enabling them to remain independent in their own homes for as long as possible. Our mission has not changed since our program began in 1977.
Our values are based on respect, compassionate service, simplicity and advocacy for the poor.
