Meals on Wheels Association of Niagara (MOWAN) celebrates Meals on Wheels week

Posted by Michelle Cuthbert on Wednesday, October 3rd, 2018

Meals on Wheels Association (MOWAN) announced that October is Community Support Month. Community Support month is celebrated across Ontario and is an opportunity to acknowledge and raise awareness of the value of supports available in our region. October 1 - 7, 2018 is Meals on Wheels week. The delivery of almost 3000 hot and frozen meals each week, carried out by caring volunteers, also includes a safety check on the wellbeing of the client. This valuable program helps clients live independently in their own homes and communities for as long as possible.

As Ontario’s population ages, community support services will become even more important. Meals on Wheels is not only designed to ensure that vulnerable seniors and adults with disabilities receive a nutritious meal but also ensures that these individuals are checked on regularly. This vital safety net allows people to remain healthier and independent in their own homes.

Leslie Kennedy, MOWAN Chair says, "Highlighting the Meals on Wheels program annually draws attention to needs of individuals in our local communities. It is an opportunity for those that may not know about the program to become aware of the resources that are available to them.”

The Meals on Wheels Association of Niagara is a partnership of Meals on Wheels agencies across the Niagara Region and was established in 2015. Any of the Meals on Wheels Agencies in the Niagara Region can be easily accessed by calling the toll free number,

18776656325 or online at http://www.mealsonwheelsniagara.ca/

MOWAN is comprised of the following Meals on Wheels agencies:

Meals on Wheels Niagara Falls (servicing Niagara Falls and NiagaraontheLake

and surrounding areas)

Meals on Wheels Fort Erie (servicing the Greater Fort Erie area)

Community Support Services of Niagara (servicing West Niagara, Welland and Pelham and

Each Meals on Wheels agency is a volunteer based notforprofit agency that provides services to help seniors and adults with disabilities live independently in their own homes.
