VENTURA, California – Jiffy Lube and Meals on Wheels have created a partnership that will benefit the Ventura County Area Agency on Aging’s meal-delivery programs to homebound older adults during the month of October.
From now until October 31, Jiffy Lube customers who receive oil changes, tire rotations, or other vehicle maintenance will have the opportunity to donate $1, $3, $5 or more to Meals on Wheels at checkout. Those funds will be used to support the meal-delivery efforts of the VCAAA, which is a division of the County of Ventura’s Human Services Agency.
Participating Jiffy Lube locations in Ventura County include:
- Camarillo (55 W. Daily Dr. or 274 Arneill Rd.)
- Fillmore (707 W. Ventura St.)
- Moorpark (797 W. Los Angeles Ave.)
- Oxnard (101 W. Esplanade Dr. or 1465 West 5th St.)

Home-delivered meals are typically available to homebound older adults aged 60+ who are unable to travel to a congregate meal site. The VCAAA partners with local Senior Centers, food companies/restaurants, and other agencies to produce nutritious meals and make the deliveries. There were more than 500,000 home-delivered meals provided countywide in 2022-23 through the VCAAA’s programs and partnerships.
The promotion is part of Jiffy Lube’s Drive To Do More commitment to support charities and volunteers nationwide. Jiffy Lube International, Inc., has jumpstarted the donations with an individual contribution of $150,000 to Meals on Wheels America.
