45 Years, Infinite Kilometres,
and Countless Meals
Oakville Meals on Wheels (OMoW) provides nutritious hot lunches and frozen entrees, Monday through Friday. OMoW goes above and beyond fresh and nutritious meal delivery by providing personalized service along with a wellness check to ensure clients are healthy, safe and thriving while continuing to live independently.
Throughout the past year, Oakville Meals on Wheels experienced a dramatic increase of nearly double, in the need for subsidized meal delivery to the broader community. Generous donations have enabled us to respond to this need. The dedication of our volunteers and monetary donations from individuals, corporations and foundations make all this possible. Please visit each link below for further information on how you can support OMoW and other vulnerable members of our community. Please donate today.
Meals on Wheels began in England during World War II and was introduced in Canada in Brantford, Ontario in 1963. In 1976, the Kiwanis Club of Oakville inaugurated a Meals on Wheels program in Oakville. The Oakville Kiwanis Meals on Wheels delivered its first meal in October of that year and has been operating continuously on a weekly basis ever since. Since our establishment 45 years ago, and our team of dedicated volunteers have delivered over 1 million meals to residents including seniors and other adults needing assistance.
“Everyone is raving about the food. Thanks for finding Mo’s. Eating is one of the basic person centered domains that are retained when journeying with dementia. It is absolutely lovely that we can provide our clients the sensorial experience of eating good tasting nutritious food.”Maureen FlynnSupervisor, Alzheimer Services Acclaim Health
