Good nutritious meals are a very important part of health and well-being for elderly persons living independently in the community. Because dietary intake is often reduced, due to health problems and decreased activity, it is even more important that meals provide the necessary nutrition for good health.
Program Offers Hot and Frozen Meals to People Who Need It Most
HOT & FROZEN MEALS
Hot and frozen meals are available throughout the week. The menus we use are supervised by a Registered Dietitian and are consistent with the requirements of Canada’s Food Guide.
MORE THAN JUST A MEAL
A warm, nutrltious meal delivered right to your kitchen can be a blessing an otherwise bad day. Meals on Wheels provides that service and it does it using a fleet of volunteers and dedicated public servants who have community in their hearts and minds.
“I do it because we enjoy it”; Sharon Kenney, a volunteer driver and server with Fort Erie Meals on Wheels, said. “It’s like giving back to the community, and the people we help are so openly thankful for what we do.”
It’s a love for community service that helps draw people like Nancy Ryan to remain involved with Meals on Wheels. Ryan is one of the coordinators for Meals on Wheels’ large-scale operation, and she laid out what the program entailed.
According to Ryan, the project serves mostly senior citizens, but can also be used by younger people who may be dealing wi!h injuries or other issues that prevent them from either cooking for themselves or leaving home to purchase groceries.

I cannot say enough about Meals on Wheels. They were there for me during a long recovery from my illness. I had no appetite at all until I tasted their delicious meals. I am definitely a fan and would recommend them to anyone.
I was never a good cook, even when I had my health, so to have Meals on Wheels delivering nourishing and tasty meals to my door is especially appreciated!
I was pleasantly surprised to find the meals delicious and nourishing. The cost was nominal and the people from Meals on Wheels were exceedingly kind. Many thanks from a grateful client.
Thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone at Meals on Wheels for all of the support, thoughtfulness and many kindnesses. I will never forget you.
Even on my best days, preparing meals is very difficult and shopping for groceries is out of the question. I always look forward to a visit from Meals on Wheels. The hot lunches are delicious and better than what many restaurants serve.
