A variety of services

The traditional Meals on Wheels group:

Volunteers handle all aspects of the service, offering home delivery of hot meals twice a week. In certain districts, less mobile clients can receive Meals on Wheels up to six days a week.

Lunch Clubs:

From 20 to 100 people have lunch together and participate in social activities. Transportation is offered by some groups.


Working with local restaurants or supermarkets, some groups organize weekly outings for their clients.

Intergenerational projects:

Some services use mostly young volunteers in order to stimulate interaction between young people and seniors.

Frozen meals:

Some groups offer frozen meals as a supplement to hot meal delivery.

Cultural communities:

A number of Meals on Wheels and Lunch Club services are based in various Montreal cultural communities.

Other services:

The Central Office is always ready to work with other partners in the community to develop new service models.
