Oakville Meals on Wheels is excited to announce the delivery of its one millionth meal!  The milestone meal was delivered on Friday, October 9, 2020, as Canadians were preparing to celebrate the Thanksgiving long weekend holiday.

“When we started in 1976, we delivered just over 1,000 meals to Oakville residents during the whole year” says Michelle Nichols, Manager of Client Services for Oakville Meals on Wheels. “Today, we deliver over 500 hot and frozen meals to clients each week. And that need has grown during the COVID-19 pandemic as more people, especially Oakville’s more vulnerable citizens, stay home and self-isolate.”

Oakville Meals on Wheels would like to thank everyone in the community for sharing this milestone, and their continued support!
