Meals on Wheels is proud to be celebrating 50 years of providing nutritious meals to our clients helping them to stay healthy and independent in their own homes.
Over the past 50 years, together with the support of our funders, the community and in collaboration with many organizations, we have helped countless clients and delivered over 4.5 million meals! Our clients receive, not just the invaluable nutritional support, but also a caring volunteer contact and a security check making our service really “more than just a meal”. The visit from one of our 454 volunteers brings a tremendous added value to our meal delivery service for our clients and their families.
Our 50th Anniversary Celebration Event was held on June 8th, 2018 and recognized the contribution of our dedicated volunteers, partners and supporters. Money raised through this event helped us to celebrate this important milestone as well as ensure that we are keeping the cost of the delivered meals as low as possible for our clients. Access to healthy and affordable home delivered meals is vital to our most vulnerable seniors and adults with disabilities in Ottawa.
Thank you to our event sponsors. We couldn’t have done it without you!
