About Mobile Meals of Southern Arizona
Mobile Meals of Southern Arizona began in 1968 as a project of Meals on Wheels, when a grant was received to provide a more robust meal delivery service to older persons than Meals on Wheels offered. We began providing special diet meals, and two meals daily, to meet this need and continue to do so today.
In 1970, when the grant ended, a core group of volunteers, including those from the Pima County Medical Society Auxiliary, wanted to continue this service. And that’s when Mobile Meals of Tucson was born.
Throughout the years, we have held true to our promise to provide healthy, nutritious meals for people who need them. Every day, Monday through Friday, our brigade of caring volunteers has delivered lunch and dinner, with love, to people who are unable to drive, shop, or cook their own meals. Our clients have always included older persons, people living with disabilities, people facing tough medical conditions, and people facing end-of-life issues.
