MEALS ON WHEELS
Meals on Wheels (MOW) was relaunched on Gabriola Island on November 20, 2012, with a dinner that served the "meal of the day" at the Rollo Centre. A sell-out crowd sampled the meal and all agreed it was delicious!
The first meal was delivered on November 23, 2012. Today we serve about 30 meals, three times a week — and counting.
Watch our MOW launch on Shaw TV.
Meals are prepared at Kiwanis Lodge in Nanaimo and placed in insulated containers. These are transported to the ferry and picked up by our MOW volunteers and delivered to our clients 3 times a week.
To help our volunteer MOW drivers locate their clients' driveways, we've started installing special driveway signage. Read more here.
If you need Meals on Wheels delivered to your home, call Meals on Wheels Nanaimo at (250) 753-1300 weekdays (9-11:45 am.), or visit the website for more information about the program, eligibility and cost.
