  • Additional tasty items 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.

Join our team and help us deliver meals to homebound seniors throughout the Salinas Valley.  We especially need Drivers in Greenfield.

  • In South County the meals are delivered on Wednesday from 10:30 am to 12:30 pm
  • Volunteers in South County do not need to come to Salinas to pick up the meals, we will bring them to you
  • Substitutes fill in for regular volunteers who are unable to do their routes
  • Volunteers provide their own vehicle and gasoline

Meals on Wheels of the Salinas Valley, Inc. is pleased to announce our newest program which serves non-seniors who need home delivered meals!

Our HANDS program, Helping Adults with our Nutritional Delivery Service.

  • Non-senior disabled adults are required to prepay for the main meals each month before delivery begins.
  • The cost for one month of delivered meals is $120.
  • We deliver one month of frozen meals one week at a time, including a bag of groceries that we call Additional Tasty Items (ATI).
  • The ATI include bread, English muffins, peanut butter, a large bag of seasonal, local fruits and vegetables and other food staples as available.

Salinas main meals are delivered every Tuesday morning and ATI items are delivered every Thursday morning. Rural deliveries, both frozen meals and ATI items are delivered every Wednesday.

Delivery days and frozen meals coincide with our senior programs.  Meals are available with or without milk.  For more information on the meals provided refer to the Program tab on our website.
