There are a number of ways you can support Meals On Wheels of San Francisco:

Donate. Nearly 50% of MOWSF's funding comes from private sources such as individual donations. And 82 cents of every dollar goes directly to delivering meals and services to seniors.

Volunteer.You can volunteer to stop in and visit with a senior on a regular basis; you can shop for groceries for a senior; you can be part of their PetPal program, delivering pet food and supplies to seniors with animal companions; you can volunteer to help with special holiday events - volunteers are an integral part of the organization.

Buy a raffle ticket! $50 will feed a senior for a week, and it will also get you a chance at winning a lease on a brand-new BMW, courtesy of BMW of San Francisco.
