About Edmonton Meals on Wheels

Edmonton Meals on Wheels is a local non-profit and registered charitable organization that provides home-delivered meal and food services to a diverse mix of people. We’re well known for our quality customer service, excellent meals and creative & innovative strategies that engage the community in various events, partnerships and volunteer opportunities. There is always something that you will be interested in; whether purchasing meals, volunteering or attending our events.

The first hot meals were delivered April 21, 1969. We have a long and experienced history in Edmonton and are continually expanding and evolving to better meet the changing needs and demographics of the city. Since 1988 we have had our own food production and distribution centre, hired Red Seal cooks and by continually monitoring our client’s preferences and needs we respond with changes to our menus and programs to better serve our community.

Think of Edmonton Meals on Wheels when you or your family members:

  • Are tired of cooking or know you need to eat healthier
  • Are finding it hard to cook well-balanced meals everyday
  • Don’t have family close at hand to help with meals or groceries
  • Need help adjusting to special dietary restrictions
  • Are just being discharged from the hospital and need a little help at home
  • Are looking for affordable, nutritious and tasty meal options
  • Want to get involved with an enthusiastic, welcoming and diverse team.

Feeding Body and Soul…

The service that Edmonton Meals on Wheels provides is farther reaching than just food. We’ve been told that the volunteers’ daily visits are equally as important as the food. In fact, food is our means of breaking social isolation, nourishing our community and building trusting relationships. Building friendships, sharing a story and doing the “little extras” when asked are considered by many to be just as important as the delivery of great food. That’s how we feed both body and soul.

“For me, being a volunteer with Edmonton Meals on Wheels isn’t just about delivering healthy food; it’s about having a sense of camaraderie with the community. You feel a bond with fellow volunteers, staff, clients and the silent supporters, our donors. You are part of a group of people who are working together to make sure the vulnerable receive fresh, nutritious and affordable meals. I have the satisfaction of knowing I’m helping people.”
