. and parts of zip codes 90210 and 90035
We deliver over 45,000 meals a year. Our volunteers deliver 5 days a week. By giving their time as well as the use of their vehicles, our volunteers help ease any loneliness or isolation a client may feel. They serve as a critical link between the client and his/her family, loved ones, and neighbors.
