Meals on Wheels
Hot Meal Program
Meals on Wheels is a volunteer-driven program that provides hot nutritious meals to homebound or isolated seniors and to those with reduced autonomy. The Meals on Wheels program in the West Island began in a church kitchen in Lachine in 1969. Now, more than 800 volunteer shoppers, cooks, and drivers work in 13 Meals on Wheels kitchens throughout the West Island. Volunteers come from all walks of life and include retired workers, business professionals, homemakers, teachers, entrepreneurs, and many others. Their combined efforts allow over 400 people, who have been referred through hospitals, CLSCs and rehabilitation centers to receive hot lunches at minimal cost.
The meals include a balanced main dish and a dessert. These are fresh, hot, home-cooked meals prepared by volunteers who add a secret ingredient: loving care. They are delivered by volunteers.

A frozen meal program is also available to West Island seniors without a medical or social service reference. A wide selection of low sodium and low fat meals, soups, and desserts are available. Meals can be purchased individually, i.e a meal is $4, soups and desserts are $1.50 each.
All orders are delivered by devoted volunteers.
