Please Note: Meals On Wheels (Caledon) is not to be a client’s sole source of nutrition.
Meals On Wheels (Caledon) services may be cancelled due to weather conditions, or other unforeseen circumstances affecting deliveries. Clients must keep additional food in their homes in the case of cancelled deliveries.
 

Who Qualifies for Meals?

Individuals who are over 65 years of age and/or have difficulty in providing for their own nutritional needs due to;

  • a physical, cognitive or mental health disability
  • long-term or short-term illness or injury

 

Security Checks

The Security Check program offers clients an increased sense of security and support through a visit provided by a volunteer during their hot or frozen meal delivery.   When clients do not answer their door or their phone, a call is made to their emergency contact that is provided upon registration to the program.

If meal delivery is not ordered, Tele-Check services can be arranged and are provided by Spectra Community Services** (for Caledon) and Torchlight Community Services (for Dufferin County*)
