Started by a dedicated group of locals in 1975 and serving continuously for 37 years, Five Cities Meals on Wheels works year-round to help residents of our county. We are an independent nonprofit, delivering meals to residents of all ages in the Pismo/Five Cities area who need a hand with regular meals. We currently serve about 2,000 meals a month, delivered by devoted volunteers.
As with many of the wonderful organizations serving our area, funds are at issue. Many of our donors and clients help support the expenses involved in daily meal preparation, but with incomes down and costs up, the challenges are real.
Our Fourth of July appeal is coming out in The Tribune this Saturday, and we hope those who are able will support our program by returning the envelope from the newspaper with any size donation that fits. Sponsorships can also be arranged at 773-2053.
Thank you for considering this community effort, and look for the red, white and blue envelope for Five Cities Meals on Wheels in your Tribune. And happy Fourth of July.
