The hot meal program offers an appetizing variety of meals consisting of a soup, a main dish, fresh fruit or salad, and a dessert. Diabetic desserts are available. Our partner kitchens can also accommodate most food allergies.
The hot meals are delivered daily over the noon hour, Monday to Saturdays, or on designated days chosen by the client

What if I cannot be home or if I don’t answer the door?
- Please note a client may cancel their meal without charge by calling before 9:00 a.m. on the day of the delivery.
Clients may make arrangements with the office should they not be available for their regular scheduled delivery due to medical appointments, etc.
- If a client does not answer their door, volunteers have been instructed to contact the Meals on Wheels office who will try and reach the client by phone. If the client cannot be reached by phone, the meal will be given away and the staff will telephone the designated emergency contact for that client.
- Volunteers have also been instructed to never leave a meal at a client’s door. If the client is not answering for their meal at the time of delivery, it will be disposed of.
