Spotlight on Meals on Wheels

Kemptville & District Home Support
Shepherd’s pie, chicken breast with bacon cheddar sauce, pork with stuffing, fish & chips, chicken noodle soup, strawberry shortcake! These are just a few of the delicious choices available through our Meals on Wheels program. Are you hungry yet?
Kemptville & District Home Support offers a large selection of delicious entrees, soups and desserts at reasonable prices. Whether it’s hot meals delivered at lunch time, or frozen meals to keep handy in the freezer, our clients appreciate an easy, delicious and nutritious meal. We have caring volunteers that get meals ready to go, amazing volunteers that deliver the meals with a smile, and friendly volunteers that make weekly calls to take people’s orders. We are truly blessed to have such a wonderful group of people who make a difference in the lives of others.
There are many different reasons why our clients choose to receive Meals on Wheels. Some are no longer able to cook due to health and/or mobility issues. Others may live alone and prefer a hot nutritious meal with little fuss. After returning home from a hospital stay, some need help to maintain nutrition during their recovery period. Others enjoy a quick, nutritious meal after a busy day of medical appointments. Caregivers of a family member who requires a lot of assistance may not have much time to prepare meals and can choose to have some frozen meals on hand. Others enjoy peace of mind, knowing that someone will drop by with a nice hot meal and to make sure they’re ok. These are just a few of the reasons why clients enjoy our Meals on Wheels program.
Our Meals on Wheels program is flexible. Clients can choose heated meals (delivery within Kemptville), and decide on how often/which days they receive their meals. Frozen meals are also available and can be arranged to be delivered throughout North Grenville, or picked up from our office. Special diet requirements, such as minced, pureed and renal can also be accommodated.
