Meals on Wheels is a non-profit organization providing a hot meal delivery service available up to 3 times each week in Kelowna, Rutland and the Westside. This service is available to shut-ins due to physical or mental disabilities and Seniors. The meals include soup, dessert and a hot entre delivered over lunch hour by Volunteers.
Delivery of our meals, which are economically priced, nourishing, good tasting and nutritionally balanced, provides a service that enhances the quality of life of the disadvantaged and distressed by promoting health physically as well as mentally and emotionally. Physical health through properly balanced meals; and mental and emotional health through the "regular checking up on" shut-ins whose contact with the outside world may be very limited.
"Building a better community by supporting independence and quality of life through the promotion of health & well being."
It provides a pleasing variety of safe nutritious meals, regular contact between isolated individuals and members of the community, promotes individual independence and well-being and provides families with peace of mind.
Cheerful and generous volunteers deliver nutritious meals six days a week all year long.
Meals on Wheels is a Family Affair... bringing shut-ins and community together. Meals on Wheels is more than good nutrition: it creates and promotes a beautiful form of community as caring volunteers cook nutritious and tasty food, cheerfully deliver meals through any and all weather and encourage our seniors and shut-ins by brightening their day.
