Meals On Wheels Program

Meals on Wheels Program

Hours of Service
Deliveries are Monday through Friday between 11:30 am and 1:00 pm.  There are no deliveries on weekends or holidays (extra meals can be provided for such times).

Purpose Statement
Providing the opportunity for individuals to live independently with self reliance in their own homes by delivering well-balanced meals and regular human contact

About Program
Meals on Wheels offers the delivery of hot, nutritious meals to seniors, many of whom live alone and at risk of isolation, and to others in need who are unable to prepare meals on their own.  Seniors who live alone, eat alone. 
Volunteers delivering the meals to seniors, provide social connection and safety check for seniors, which is proven to be critical for seniors’ health and wellness.
*Meals are prepared at the Ridge Meadows Seniors Centre

Who Qualifies/Eligibility
Seniors or individuals, who, due to health or disability are unable to prepare meals, also must be a resident of Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows that have the ability to pay for the service.
