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?
This program is designed for senior islanders who are unable to
prepare all their own hot meals. Please contact your physician or
Home Care Nurse to discuss eligibility.
