Edmonton Meals on Wheels continues daily meal delivery amid COVID-19

Charity is focusing resources on core service delivering meals to the city’s isolated and most vulnerable.

During the COVID-19 situation, Edmonton Meals on Wheels is committed to maintaining our core meal services and delivery to vulnerable, homebound, and isolated Edmontonians.

We are closely following the advice of our respected health authorities, expanding our facility sanitation and ensuring practices in delivery like social distancing are in place to minimize the risk of spreading the virus to our volunteers and clients. Our resourceful and responsive staff are rolling out a plan during the next days as circumstances evolve. We have and will continue to communicate with our volunteers and clients when changes occur.

We strongly encourage those who are ill to remain at home. Meals on Wheels is very fortunate to be a part of a strong city-wide voluntary network and we will continue conversations within the senior’s sector and with others to support us when needed going forward.

We encourage the community to connect with us through social media or email at
emow@mealsonwheelsedmonton.org. This leaves our phone lines free for those who have no other means but telephone contact. We apologize in advance if there is a delay in responding to your inquiry.

You can support Edmonton Meals on Wheels’ emergency meal programs by making an online donation or call 780.429.2020. Your generosity in this time of need is greatly appreciated.
