COVID-19 Update: An important message from Meals on Wheels

Meals on Wheels is continuously monitoring and adjusting protocols for the protection of clients, volunteers, staff and everyone in the community. We follow recommendations from public health authorities and are conducting contactless deliveries, screening clients and volunteers, and providing PPE to volunteers to wear during their shift. As circumstances change, we will continue to adapt our plans and protocols in response to the evolving situation.

For over 50 years, Meals on Wheels, a not-for-profit agency, has been dedicated to providing nutritious meals, daily check-ins, and comfort with a smile.

Our daily hot meal program and weekly frozen meals paid services are available on both a short-term and long-term basis to eligible clients:

  • Seniors
  • Adults who are chronically ill
  • Adults living with a disability
  • Adults convalescing from surgery or illness
  • Adults undergoing medical treatment

Why choose Meals on Wheels?

In addition to providing nutritious meals, this volunteer-based program allows members of the community to remain in their homes as an alternative to costly retirement or nursing residences. Daily visits from Meals on Wheels volunteers provide peace of mind and support to their loved ones and themselves.
