Edmonton Meals on Wheels has an excellent reputation for providing quality service to Edmontonians. As a non-profit, registered charitable organization, we utilize creative & customer focused strategies and activities to enhance our meal services and programs while engaging the community in our events, partnerships and volunteer opportunities.
The first meals were delivered April 21, 1969. Since then, the programs have expanded and evolved to better meet the changing needs and demographics of the city.
Our hot meal delivery program remains the most substantial component of our client services – providing 1, 2 & 3 meal packages right to the door of seniors and housebound residents. Wherever possible, we accommodate client preferences and diets. Other programs include the Heat n’ Eat frozen meal program (including vegetarian, gluten and lactose free and Halal meals), Heat n’ Eat outlets throughout the city, the Pet Meals program, nutrition and cooking for 1 or 2 workshops and The Grocery Bag™ – a grocery delivery service.
Today, over 400 volunteers donate in excess of 67,000 hours while helping to prepare, package and deliver thousands of meals and grocery orders to people who cannot shop or prepare their own meals. Volunteers also support the agency in fundraising, administration and committee work. Our Board of Directors is a group of volunteers that, through their collective knowledge and skills, provide a solid foundation for the agency to fulfil its mission.
We have our own food production and volunteer centre centrally located in Edmonton. Drop on by, the coffee is always on and the smell of home cooking fills the air!
The service that Meals on Wheels provides is often farther reaching than just food. While the meals we prepare are wholesome, safe and tasty, we’ve been told that many clients consider the volunteer’s daily visit equally important. Building friendships, sharing a story or laugh and doing the “little extras” when asked are considered by many to be just as important as the delivery of good food. That’s how we feed both body and soul.
With spring finally starting to bloom in our city, the few rays of sunshine give us a glimpse of new beginnings and a fresh start.
This is the perfect time to renew your commitment to supporting essential meal and food services that Edmonton Meals on Wheels provides.
