Meals on Wheels Program

Who Should Use the Program?

Meals on Wheels can be a welcome relief for anyone who is unable to make meals on their own, due to a variety of reasons, such as;  age related illness, mobility loss, disability, illness, recovery from surgery or to alleviate caregiver stress.  Meals on Wheels is available to provide proper nutrition to those who require assistance.  There is no minimum number of meals and no fee to cancel.

How Do I Sign Up?

Please call the Meals on Wheels hotline at 403-525-8885 between 8 am – noon, Monday to Friday.  A coordinator will be happy to answer any questions and sign you up over the phone. 

How Do I Get My Meals?

Hot meals are delivered between 9:30 am and noon by our trained volunteers right to your door.  We offer service Monday through Friday, with frozen meals being delivered for the weekends and holidays, if desired.  Our volunteers will also deliver some cheer with a bit of conversation and a smiling face to all of the Meals on Wheels clientele.

What If I Have an Appointment?

Please let us know as soon as possible if you won’t be home on your specified delivery date.  We would appreciate at least 2 days’ notice for any absences; including medical appointments and vacations.  Unless prior arrangements have been made, if the driver finds that you are not home during your delivery time, your meal will be returned to us, and your account will still be billed.  Please call the Meals on Wheels hotline at 403-525-8885 as soon as possible for any cancellations or amendments to your delivery schedule.

What is the Menu Like?

The menu is prepared monthly and can be found on our website.  Meals are different for each day of the month and you may choose either a weekly schedule (for example, every Tuesday and Thursday) or you may make selections according to the menu.  Unfortunately, at this time, we can only make special considerations for allergies and cannot accommodate celiac, vegan or minced food diets.

Who Makes the Meals?

All meals are made on site in the Veiner Centre’s professional grade kitchen by our qualified staff.  We take pride in offering a variety of healthy, nutritious food options to our clientele, and strive to make customer service our number one priority.  All meals come with a main course (protein, starch and vegetable) as well as salad, dessert, and our homemade daily soups.

How Much Will it Cost?

Meals are set at a flat rate of $8.50 per meal as of August 3, 2021.

You are welcome to order as many or as few meals as you require based on your own needs.  If you are low-income, you may qualify for subsidy.  Please call the Meals on Wheels hotline for more information. 

How do I Pay?

Meals are billed monthly and you may pay in person at the Veiner Centre, or mail a cheque to Meals on Wheels, c/o Veiner Centre, 225 Woodman Ave SE.  Drivers do not process payments, as you will receive your invoice either by mail or e-mail.
