Give A Meal 

The Meals on Wheels program is so much more than a meal, it can be a safety net.  With increased living costs, some seniors are struggling and simply cannot afford regular meals.
 
Our Meals on Wheels subsidy program provides meals at no cost, a caring volunteer who performs a safety check for many who are isolated, and ensures that seniors are receiving nutritional meals to help them remain healthy in their own homes. 
 
 
 
Last year, over 40 clients benefited from the subsidy program, receiving approximately 1,100 meals at no cost thanks to the generosity and compassion of community members like you made is possible. 
 

For every $10 donation you will give a nutritional meal to a local senior who needs helps to remain healthy in their own home. 

You can donate online using our secure Canada Helps Donate Now link below to make your donation!
