Meals on Wheel of the Salinas Valley, Inc. has collaborated with many community organizations to bring our clients more than a friendly smile and a daily meal. Together, we provide the following to our clients on a weekly basis:

  • Fresh local fruits, vegetables and bread from the Food Bank for Monterey County
  • Additional Tasty Items (ATI) such as tuna, peanut butter, oatmeal, pasta & sauce, canned vegetables and other items provided through a generous grant from the Episcopal Senior Community.
  • Weekly edition of The Monterey County Weekly
  • Free library books by mail from the Monterey County Free Libraries

 

We would like to thank our partners for their support and commitment to our community.
