Giving Tuesday

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.

You may have heard Michael Eatson of Peterborough Volkswagen on a local radio station talk about the program and how for every $10 donation made during Giving Tuesday you are supporting the local Meals on Wheels subsidy program that provides meals to a senior or person living with a disability who truly can't afford one for themselves.

You can donate online using our secure Canada Helps link button below.

DonateOur 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. Michael Eatson, and his wife Heather, are two such volunteers that see firsthand why this program is needed in our community.

Thank you to Michael Eatson of Peterborough Volkswagen for support Community Care’s Meals on Wheels program this Giving Tuesday and as a volunteer. To hear Michael's radio clip, click here.

We are powered by volunteers who play a significant role in delivering many of our programs and services.  During the pandemic, we have experienced an increase in many of our services, but we can only continue to sustain that increase with more volunteers to support our programs.

 Community Care is Leading Forward 

We have been resilient and continued to be a light throughout the pandemic, never missing a day of service to clients.  We adapted and extended programs to help even more residents of the City and County of Peterborough through these difficult times.

This work was also made possible by the dedicated efforts of our staff and our tireless volunteers who together went the extra mile every day to ensure the health and safety of those who needed us most.


While we will remain COVID aware and vigilant, we, like our communities, are moving forward from crisis to recovery.  Despite all the changes that COVID has brought, our mission remains the same, to empower our clients to live safely and independently at home.

We need your help to continue leading forward.
