Wholesome Meals on Wheels Association of Port Alberni, B.C.
MOW: Who we are/ what we do
Meals on Wheels in Port Alberni is a not for profit registered charitable organization led by a volunteer Board of Directors, a paid Meal Coordinator , and a large number of volunteer drivers.
Every weekday between 4 p.m. and 5 p.m., our volunteers deliver more than 65 meals and friendly visits to home-bound people, including seniors, caregivers, individuals with chronic or acute medical conditions, and individuals recovering from surgery, illness or injury.
In addition to delivering a hot nutritious meal to our clients, the drivers also offer the comfort of a friendly visit and the reassurance of an informal check on their safety and well-being.
Meals are prepared by Cypress at Rim Rock and offer an entrée of meat or fish, potato, rice or pasta and fresh vegetables, plus either a salad or soup and dessert. Special nutrition and dietary needs are met including those of diabetics. Fresh meals to cover the weekend are available for those who wish them and are included in the Friday and Saturday deliveries.
