Meals on Wheels provides a subsidized meal delivery service for local clients. With support from Northern Health, NEAT cooks five dinners each week along with soup, salad, and dessert. Meals are tailored to meet a variety of dietary considerations. Dinners are delivered by volunteers Monday (1), Tuesday (2), and Thursday (2) between 4:00 and 5:00pm.
Meals cost $15 each and are subsidized to $7 each. Financial support is available for those that require it through the Seniors Care Foundation.

CORPORATE SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES
The subsidy we provide to clients relies on community support from people like you! We have weekly, monthly, and yearly sponsorships available starting at $3000 along with team building opportunities to deliver meals. Contact us today to get involved.
Meals on Wheels relies on volunteers to get meals to all of our clients. There are daytime and delivery shifts available – many hands make light work & we love all the help we can get. All shifts are at the Fort St John Curling Club.
As a volunteer you have a choice of which shifts to fill. Your options include:
Kitchen (cooking/packaging) support from 9am – 12pm & 1pm – 4pm
Deliveries are Monday, Tuesday & Thursday starting at 4pm.
Upon delivery it is suggested that you spend some time visiting with the clients as a way to further enrich their day. This is strongly recommended although not mandatory. Volunteers will be required to maintain a food safety log which can be filed at pick up locations at the end of each week.
