The Charity: Calgary Meals on Wheels


About Calgary Meals on Wheels

Food is a basic need, a life necessity.  What we eat or don’t eat affects our mental, emotional and physical well-being.  There is a significant population in our city who, for various reasons, are not able to tend to their basic daily nutrition. Calgary Meals on Wheels is proud to provide programs that directly target the issues of poverty, and hunger.

What began as a small operation in November of 1965,  delivering meals to eight individuals prepared in a church basement, has grown into a thriving, innovative production facility that prepares and delivers over 1,700 meals each day; more than 425,000 meals a year.

Although our principal clients are seniors, our programs are open to all Calgarians who are in need of a meal service to maintain independence in their own homes, regardless of age or circumstance.  We focus on serving all individuals in need of nutritious meals including the homeless, and vulnerable school children.

In over 50 years of service, Calgary Meals on Wheels has never missed a day of scheduled delivery!
