Mayors for Meals

Thank you to all of the elected officials who joined us in delivering meals to our homebound neighbors!

Meals, and So Much More

Meal Delivery

For homebound older adults and those navigating chronic health challenges, every meal is a beacon of care through Vivalon’s Meals on Wheels and Nourish programs. When we knock on their door, we’re delivering more than sustenance; we’re providing a friendly face and a warm conversation that brightens their days.


Our impact: Over 141,000 meals lovingly prepared and delivered annually, nourishing the souls of over 750 people in Marin County.


If you or a loved one are homebound and in need of food, we can help! Whether for the long haul or during a season of recovery, our meals are here for you. Recovering from surgery? Battling an illness? Let us lend a helping hand.


To begin your journey with us, simply dial (415) 473-4636 and open the door to a world of care and connection.

Food Pantry

Step into the heart of our Brown Bag Pantry, where Marin residents can access the nutrition they need at no cost. Imagine this scene: a bustling space filled with fresh groceries, to help those facing the challenge of food insecurity.


Our impact: Over 5,600 bags of groceries caringly distributed, bringing sustenance and hope to over 300 individuals annually.


Are you or someone you know navigating the uncertainty of where the next meal will come from? Every Marin resident in need is welcome. When you visit our pantry, we don’t just ask for your name and address; we ask for the opportunity to support you.
