Edmonton Meals on Wheels

Since 1969, Edmonton Meals on Wheels has been providing home delivered, hot meal service for seniors and housebound individuals who cannot prepare or cook their own meals. While Edmonton Meals on Wheels also provides frozen meals, a grocery delivery service, personal shopping and nutrition workshops, our hot meal program remains the most significant service required by our clients.

The Christmas season is a special time for people to celebrate with family and friends. Unfortunately, many of our clients spend this time alone in their homes. They don't get to participate in the festivities and special activities that take place over the holidays. For many Edmonton Meals on Wheels clients, getting out of the house can be very challenging with icy sidewalks, snow packed curbs and limited mobility. Our clients are at the age where most of their friends have either moved away or passed away; a lot them don't have family near by to come and pay them a visit. Our volunteers who deliver their meals are providing our clients with a connection to the outside world. Someone who takes the time to ask how your day is going can make a real difference in a person's overall health and well being. By donating to Edmonton Meals on Wheels, you are making sure that the homebound residents of our city have access to nutritious meals and a social support system.
