Supporting the independence and well-being of homebound seniors, veterans, and the disabled since 1971

Meals on Wheels of Long  Beach (MOWLB) was launched in 1971 during which time MOWLB has never missed a scheduled delivery day and has never stopped meal service to any client due to funding cuts from federal, state or local government. MOWLB has never accepted government funding.

During 2018, Meals on Wheels of Long Beach (MOWLB) delivered over 175,000 meals, an increase of over 50,000 meals in the last four years. In fact, MOWLB has consistently and sustainably increased the number of clients served during this period. Currently, MOWLB serves upwards of 425 homebound seniors, veterans and disabled, regardless of age, in Long Beach, Signal Hill and Leisure World Seal Beach.
