Southern Gulf Islands Meals On Wheels Program

Nutritious hot meals at low cost.

How does the program work?

After you have registered with the program, a volunteer may begin to deliver a hot meal to your home up to 3 times each week.

Meals are prepared and packaged by food services staff at local restaurants. Hot meals may be delivered to your home on disposable dishes. The meals consist of soup, main course and dessert. You may be requested to arrange pick up the meals yourself.

Menus are monitored regularly by a registered dietition to ensure that they meet nutritional standards.

You have the option to order more than 1 meal at a time, so that you can freeze the extra meal for another day.

Who can get Meals On Wheels?
