Volunteer Drivers

Organization Details
Organization Name: Meals on Wheels
Address: 174 Hargrave Street
Winnipeg MB  R3C 3N2
Website: http://www.mealswinnipeg.com
Organizational Description: Meals on Wheels provides meals to those who are unable to obtain or prepare meals for themselves. While providing nutritious food is an important part of the Organization's services, the daily visit from volunteers is equally important to clients. For many of them, the volunteer visit is their only contact with another individual during the day and therefore eases the feeling of loneliness. For the families and friends of clients, they are assured that a trained volunteer provides meals to them on a regular basis giving them the confidence of security that their loved ones are provided for. These factors set us apart from the frozen food sections in grocery stores.
