Bicycle enthusiasts will gather this Thursday, March 21 at 10 am at the offices of Meals On Wheels West to deliver meals, which is located at 1823 Michigan Avenue in Santa Monica. 

Teams will be dispatched on client routes with hot and cold meals in their trailers.

With support from C.I.C.L.E., Santa Monica SPOKE, and Sustainable Streets the volunteers will cruise the bicycle friendly streets of Santa Monica. 

These volunteers, like the daily volunteers who use cars, delivery food and friendship to neighbors who are unable to shop and prepare nutritious meals for themselves. 

The services of Meals On Wheels West aids those with limited mobility due to age, disability or chronic illness to be comfortable in their own homes. 

Low care neighbors prefer to stay at home and not move to expensive care facilities.

The March for Meals event is part of a national campaign to highlight the services of Meals On Wheels programs throughout the country and increase awareness of senior hunger. 

Each night more than six million Americans over the age of 60 go to sleep hungry because they lack the money or mobility to obtain food.

Join Meals On Wheels West to ensure your neighbor has something healthy to eat today and tomorrow. 

Volunteers and donations are welcome. 

Delivery volunteers are dispatched Monday – Friday at 10:30 am. 

Call to sign up at 310.394.7558 or visit MealsOnWheelsWest.org.
