About Meals-on-Wheels

Our “Meals on Wheels Service” is a Japanese style meal delivery service for seniors with mobility difficulties so they can stay connected with their community and culture through weekly Japanese-style meal delivery.

Every Tuesday, Tonari Gumi kitchen volunteers prepare (boxed lunches) with miso soup, designed so they can be refrigerated and eaten later. Volunteer drivers then pick up the and deliver them to the seniors’ doors.
