Our Home-Delivered Meal Service is the only service in San Diego County delivering breakfast, lunch and dinner to people affected by HIV, cancer, heart disease, type 2 diabetes and chronic kidney disease who are mentally or physically unable to prepare meals as a result of their diagnosis. Meals are provided for every day of the year, on a county-wide basis, free of charge.
