Volunteer drivers – Deliver meals along assigned route to their client list.
Drivers commit to delivery using their own vehicle. Routes are available Monday through Friday with delivery between 11:30 am and 1:00 pm.
Food & Friends – Each location has a Food & Friends Coordinator to organize and provide leadership for the group.
Boutique Finds Store – Our 100% volunteer run ladies thrift store. This is a well organized, nicely staged ladies retail shop. Volunteer shifts are generally 3 hours with a minimum 1 day a week commitment.
We’re looking for you!
I am humbled and grateful for your generosity of spirit and your compassion for the seniors in our community through LMOW.
Volunteering for our annual event involves, heavy lifting of tables and chairs, the calling of 50/50, attentive and superior serving skills, selling of baskets, clothes and never ending dish washing… all to make this the best event for those attending.
It is all of you who so generously give your time, your warmth, your smiles, your humour and your caring. It is all of you, doing what you do, who take my breath away. Thank you and I appreciate each and every one of you. We could not do what we do without volunteers!

Robert has been a volunteer with Meals on Wheels for just over three years. He is a retired accountant. “My parents used Meals on Wheels, just before they moved into a full care facility. I saw the great service they provided to seniors and others who needed help, so when I retired I wanted to do something for the community, so I volunteered. Today I help out for a couple of hours a day delivering meals and meeting people. It gets me out of the house and I know I am giving back to the community. Meals on Wheels have a great staff that really cares about the people they serve. I recommend Meals on Wheels to anyone who needs help getting dinners because they are too old, or disabled, or laid up due to illness, surgery or whatever…” Robert.
