CRITICAL NOTICE- COVID-19 Pandemic Response: Kelowna Meals on Wheels will continue to provide its food service to those in need in Kelowna and West Kelowna during the COVID-19 epidemic. We are fortunate that our meal provider Lynn Miller the owner and chef at Beet'N Boo's Bistro and Catering is committed to getting through this together even though she has had to close her doors to regular restaurant traffic. We are so in awe and appreciative of her efforts. This means that our clients will be receiving the fresh and healthy meals that they need during this time.
We are also very proud of our volunteers that are just as committed and brave during this incredibly challenging time. We cannot say enough about them. We always knew we had the best volunteers, but we are even further grateful and appreciative of their love and caring for humanity.
The epidemic has dramatically affected the way that we have to operate for the immediate and long-term future. At time, we are requesting emergency support in the following areas.
3. Volunteers – we are currently preparing for an influx of available volunteers in the coming months. We are very appreciative of the recent volunteer requests. If you already have volunteered, thank you! There is a volunteer application form on our website at: http://mow-online.com/volunteers/volunteer-here. Later this week we’ll be looking at adding additional meal options during this period which could further reduce the exposure COVID-19.
Thank you and god bless you during this time.
