  Up until a few months ago, Thomas struggled to get groceries. He’s homebound due to health issues, and has no family in town. Thomas relied on busy neighbours to go to the corner store, and pick up a few items for him when they could. This meant a lot of snacks and high sodium meals ended up in his kitchen. The unhealthy diet made Thomas’s health issues worse. Sometimes he had no food to eat. But today his fridge and cupboards are full of healthy items he enjoys, and...

  This Featured Volunteer has a packed schedule. One thing that takes priority? Volunteering her time with our Store-to-Door grocery delivery program. Lynn was looking to give back to her community and after seeing a segment on Global News, decided that Edmonton Meals on Wheels was the right fit for her.

Being able to see clients and the difference...

  When this Featured Volunteer retired, he was looking for a way to give back to his community. Little did he know, he’d be getting back so much more. Cal started volunteering with Edmonton Meals on Wheels nine years ago and has enjoyed it since his very first shift. “The ‘thanks’ from my clients on my first few routes were very satisfying”, he says. Cal became a Meal Delivery Driver on recommendation from his friends.  He’s continued for many reasons, one of them being how much he can help. “I...
