Mountain Meals on Wheels (MMOW) is a non-profit 501 (c) (3) organization. We arrange for and deliver meals to persons who are unable to prepare or shop for their meals due to illness, convalescence or frailty. We deliver meals to San Bernardino mountain communities; stretching from Cedar Pines Park/Valley of Enchantment on the west, to Green Valley Lake on the east.
Meals are provided five days a week (Monday through Friday), 52 weeks a year with only a few exceptions: major holidays and severe snow days.
We purchase nutritionally balanced meals from Mountains Community Hospital in Lake Arrowhead. We ask recipients to pay a nominal fee for their meals. Those unable to afford the meals may qualify for a subsidy.
Mountain Meals on Wheels is an all-volunteer organization relying solely on our local community and charitable organizations for donations. We do not receive any federal or governmental grants or funding.
We have a great team of volunteer drivers delivering the meals daily. In addition, our drivers can provide an occasional check-up on the welfare of our home-bound recipients.

MOUNTAIN MEALS ON WHEELS AND MCH GOING GREEN!
Mountain Meals on Wheels and the Mountain Communities Hospital have upgraded our food containers, which are now microwaveable and recyclable. We deliver nearly 9000 meals annually, so moving to a more eco-friendly container is a considerable step forward in helping the environment. Also, the previous polystyrene containers were not microwaveable requiring recipients to transfer their meals to another plate or microwave-safe container before zapping it. Now our recipients can use the delivered food containers directly to warm the meals in a microwave.
The Mountain Community Hospital has agreed to adopt these new containers hospital-wide, hence there will be no additional charge to MMOW for using these new containers.
