Program Details


We provide delicious, healthy meals to individuals in Glace Bay and surrounding areas who are unable to prepare meals for themselves.

Meals on Wheels focuses on caring for individuals whose diminished mobility makes it hard to shop for food, prepare meals or socialize with others. Generally programs serve adults 60 and over, although age requirements can vary. People who are mobile enough to join others for meals in a group setting where seniors congregate, like senior centers and cafes, are encouraged to do so; while others less mobile may qualify for home delivery. 

Why it Matters: 

Nutritious meals are a key factor in keeping you or your loved one in their own home, but sometimes shopping and cooking can be too much.  We can help ensure that healthy meals are one less thing you have to worry about.

Delivery Area, Rates & Dates

Food Delivery


Sliding Scale Policy

Meals are billed at $5, $7, or $10, dependent on client income. Clients who have previously accessed the Meals on Wheels subsidy fund will still be able to do so. For clients in higher income brackets, meal prices will be closer to the actual production cost.
This is a necessary change brought on by rising production costs.

Meals are delivered in Glace Bay, Port Morien to Donkin, Reserve Mines, Dominion

Meals are delivered Monday - Thursday, between 3-4pm

Household Income

At or below $25,000

$25,001 -  $50,000
