Meals on Wheels of West Los Angeles

Since 1976, Meals on Wheels of West Los Angeles, a non-profit, volunteer community service organization has been providing nutritious meals and friendship to individuals who are unable to plan, shop, or prepare meals for themselves due to illness, disability, or advanced age.  Monday thru Friday, our volunteers deliver a hot midday meal and a cold supper to elderly and disabled individuals living in
·      Westwood (90024),
·      West Los Angeles (90025 & 90064),
·      Brentwood (90049), and
·      Bel Air (90077).
We deliver over 45,000 meals a year. Our volunteers visit daily with elderly and disabled individuals.  They serve as a critical link between that person and his/her family, loved ones, and neighbors. By giving their time as well as the use of their vehicles, our volunteers help ease any loneliness or isolation a client may feel.

 

Spotlight on Ethel

Client Spotlight:  Ethel - "I love your daily visits."

 Raised in Santa Monica near the ocean, Ethel, at 102, says she has lived a lovely life.  At a young age, Ethel took both piano and painting lessons, and she remembers painting outside by the ocean. She feels she has been very fortunate to experience so many things and meet so many interesting people. As a child, Ethel traveled often to Croydon, England, where her parents grew up.

 They also traveled to Scotland, France and across Europe.  As an adult, she traveled through her work as President of the State Dental Association, not only throughout California, but up also into Canada, across the U.S., and along the East Coast.  Ethel took many photographs during her travels and brought them home to Los Angeles, where she created oil paintings of her European and U.S. excursions. Ethel says she feels lucky to have had two nice husbands, Ralph and Victor, who she says were both "very good to her."
