We offer worry-free meals prepared by local meal providers with the right amount of nutrients. Hot and frozen meal choices with special diet accommodation options mean there will always be delicious, healthy food available for you or your loved one.

Each days hot meal consists of a meat or fish, vegetables, bread, soup or salad and dessert. Availability and frequency of delivery varies by community. Contact the Meals on Wheels team for schedules.

Frozen Meals

Frozen meals are ordered by clients and delivered by volunteers on a bi-weekly basis.  This popular program offers a wide-range of entrées, desserts, soups, sides and breakfast items.
