Meals on Wheels
More than just a meal, a friendly check-in by our volunteers can help you feel connected to your community.
Our Meals on Wheels home visiting service can help at times when you are recovering from illness or injuries or can be a long-term arrangement that gives you the confidence that your nutrition and meals are being taken care of while you relax and enjoy life.
Hearty and nutritious fresh meals are delivered each weekday by our staff and volunteers, who can also assist you to prepare meals in your own home. We can also deliver frozen meals.
It’s not only a nutritious meal delivered to your door, it’s also a friendly chat and check-in to make sure everything is OK.
