Our story

San Pedro Meals on Wheels, Inc., was founded in 1972 by Church Women United of the First Presbyterian & First Methodist Churches of San Pedro. Today, many members of the First Presbyterian Church volunteer their services.  Our office and kitchen facilities are made available on the First Pres. San Pedro Church premises.

San Pedro Meals on Wheels, Inc., is a not-for-profit corporation, community based, and non sectarian. It is operated by a Board of Directors, of whom are civic-minded volunteers and business leaders in our community.  Our concept of delivering nutritious, hot meals to those in need originated in England during World War II, and has since spread to major cities throughout the United States & other countries, world wide

Since 1972, nearly 1,100,000 quality meals have been served by San Pedro Meals on Wheels.  Because this is a volunteer organization, the cost of each delivery is only $7.00 per day. This amount doesn’t cover the full cost, which is made up by contributions from individuals and organizations.
