Frequently Asked Questions
Meals can assist in times of illness, while recuperating from surgery, after hospitalization or other life challenges. If you are unable to prepare your own meal because of illness or motivation, you are recuperating from surgery or a stay in hospital, or you are disabled or elderly, Meals on Wheels is available to you.
Meals can be paid for in various ways. Clients may pay for their own meals and will be invoiced each month for the cost of the meals. Some clients may qualify for subsidies through the Long-Term Care Program (1-866-441-4340 Ext 6512-Speak to the Social Work on Duty), or, if you are a veteran, you may be eligible under the program of the Department of Veterans Affairs (1-866-522-2122). The price of a single meal, either hot or frozen, is $7.50.
Arrangements can be made if you have diabetes, food allergies, require soft, minced or pureed meals, or need to restrict salt or fat.

Frozen Meal Program â€“ We take orders on Tuesday between 9:00a.m.-2:00p.m. for delivery on Wednesday, Thursday or Friday (whatever day is convenient for the client).

Things to Know:
Client Responsibility: The Client must be home to receive their meal from our volunteers. Also, if a meal is not required on a specific day, please notify the office before 9:15a.m. or earlier if possible. After this time, the change may not be able to be made, and the client would end up being charged for the meal. Call us and leave a message the day before if you are worried about forgetting.
