Meals on Wheels Program
Temporary Scope of Service
Our Meals on Wheels program is still open and available to seniors, offering meal delivery services from Monday to Friday, as always. During this COVID pandemic, we are also supporting seniors with wellness phone check-ins.
If you are in need of these services, please call our office at 604-467-6911, Ext. 1218, and a staff will return your call as messages are checked daily.
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).
Providing the opportunity for individuals to live independently with self reliance in their own homes by delivering well-balanced meals and regular human contact
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
