Calgary Meals on Wheels

Community Benefit

About

Everyone deserves to be well fed.

Regardless of age, ability, or life-circumstances, we all have something to offer the world. It may be as simple as a smile, or it may be a testament to the courage everyday living requires— whatever shape our gifts take, they exist within all of us to share. At Calgary Meals on Wheels, we give the comfort of healthy, nutritious meals to anyone who needs them, so they can continue giving themselves to the world. What we aim to offer our clients is far more than full stomachs, we want to offer them the chance to be the heroes of their own stories.

Our Impact

Let a sigh of relief be your legacy.

Do you remember a time when a family member or friend struggled with the daily task of meal preparation – the planning, the shopping, the chopping, the cooking, the cleaning? When a new client signs up for our service, we can hear the sigh of relief as they realize our meals will now be there to help them. Your legacy gift will ensure Calgary Meals on Wheels will always be there to provide the comfort of healthy, delicious meals, so our clients don’t have to face their challenges alone.

In 2021 we produced just under 1,000,000 meals and delivered an average of almost 4,000 meals throughout Calgary every day. With more than 850 clients served each day, our services have touched the lives of countless Calgarians over the past 50+ years.
