About Us

Purpose

Torrance-Lomita Meals On Wheels is a non-profit volunteer community service organization that provides home delivered meals for the house-bound, without regard to age, race, sex or religion. We are a temporary service for the convalescing, the handicapped, the aged or frail, the chronically ill or the dying, who are unable to prepare adequate meals for themselves.

Service

Meals are prepared, cooked and packaged by the Salvation Army, Redondo Beach. Each delivery consists of two meals: one hot meal to be eaten at midday and a cold meal for the evening. The meals are delivered between noon and 1pm, five days a week, Monday through Friday, except on holidays. Meals are planned by a registered dietician and are nutritionally balanced to include each of the four main food groups and provide two-thirds of the Recommended Daily Allowance. Trained volunteers donate their time as well as the operation of their vehicles to deliver the meals.
