Let's Get Started!
Together, we hope to help you eat right, stay healthy and live well!
Each delivery includes two complete, freshly prepared meals each weekday ˗ a hot dinner, lunch, dessert and beverage.
Included with every delivery is a “Friendly Visit” from a Meals on Wheels of Long Beach delivery volunteer. These visits enable MOWLB staff to provide daily wellness checks for all of our clients.
Once you become a Meals on Wheels of Long Beach (MOWLB) client, you will be contacted by a member of our Client Support Program (CSP) to assist you with referrals for supportive services that will enable you to remain safe and comfortable at home. Our CSP team members will check to make sure your service is going smoothly and inquire about additional needs you might have and how we may be able to assist you.

I feel like I'm on vacation. I'm gaining weight and I get to meet a variety of new people. I am grateful for the program. The food is fresh and good, the service is wonderful, and the visitors are so nice and helpful.
Since I no longer drive, Meals on Wheels allow me more independence by not having to ask someone to take me shopping so often.
I really want to say thank you to Meals on Wheels because if it wasn't for this service I would not be eating. When my husband died I had no one to turn to for help, but now, because of you, I now have someone to depend on.
There are so many of us that don't have the funds or have issues that keeps us from cooking so it means a lot to me to have a helping hand. I AM SO VERY THANKFUL FOR YOU ALL!
You allow us to live at home by providing delicious means and friendly smiling faces that greet me every day.
There is a wide variety of food and each meal is all well balanced. I am diabetic and your meals accommodate my specific meal needs.
Thank you ever so much for your incredible service of providing good food and delivering them with such kindness and joy!
Gratitude and Joy to all of you for your service. It is a pleasure every day to receive the delicious and generous meals from kind volunteers.
Thank you for such delicious meals. Since starting Meals on Wheels I have more energy and I’ve gained some weight. You truly are a lifesaver!
