Culver Palms Meals on Wheels.
Culver Palms Meals on Wheels is a volunteer-based non-profit serving approximately 40 square miles on the west side of the Los Angeles basin. They have been delivering hot or frozen meals to homebound people since 1974.
Their mission is to provide meals delivered by volunteers to people who are home-bound due to age, illness, or disability in Culver City, Palms, and surrounding neighborhoods ensuring that no one goes hungry.
Their volunteers work 5 days a week and deliver over 45,000 meals a year. However, they don’t just deliver nutrition. They make regular wellness and safety check-ins to prevent isolation and loneliness. Their volunteers also maintain a program of Goodwill Calls, with telephone calls to those clients who need a follow-up of any type.
Perhaps you know someone that could benefit from the Meals on Wheels program OR maybe this sounds like a great volunteer opportunity for you to consider.
