Meals on Wheels
San Francisco, CA
Jackson Liles Architecture is honored to be working with Meals on Wheels San Francisco on the design of their new Kitchen Production facility and the renovation of their existing headquarters. Meals on Wheels San Francisco and its volunteers provide seniors what they need to live independent and dignified lives — nutritious meals, professional social work and a friendly visitor. Their network of drivers, social workers, nutritionists, community partners, volunteers, donors, and advocates are a formidable force against senior neglect and malnutrition. MOWSF believes in delivering more than a meal – they are nourishing the whole person.
Jackson Liles Architecture is designing the new Meals on Wheels San Francisco Kitchen Production & Support Center, which is Phase 1 of MOWSF’s expansion to meet the needs of San Francisco seniors for the next 30 years. The Phase 1 project will be a new, multi-level two story building of approximately 55,000 square feet located in an industrial area of the Bayview District. This new facility will allow MOWSF to greatly expand the number of meals they produce and will include a large high-tech Production Kitchen for bulk meal production, Cold Storage and Dry Storage areas with high bay racking, a recessed loading dock, Offices, Lobby and support spaces. Phase 2 of MOWSF’s expansion will consist of a renovation of and potential addition to their existing facility on Fairfax Avenue to support their administration, operational and volunteer support needs.
We had the opportunity to attend Mayor Lee’s press conference in July 2017 as the 50th Anniversary Meals on Wheels San Francisco Capital Campaign was launched for this important project. We are honored and excited to be able to help create a facility that will help this vital organization meet their future needs.
