Meals on Wheels
What is Meals on Wheels?
Meals on Wheels is a service that provides and delivers nutritious, hot meals to individuals in their own homes at noon, up to 5 days a week (frozen meals are available for the weekend).
Who can receive Meals on Wheels?
An individual or couple can receive Meals on Wheels if they are unable to prepare meals due to illness, disability, surgery, broken limbs or frailty, or while adjusting to a special diet.
How do I receive Meals on Wheels?
The meals are delivered by volunteers to the individual’s home in disposable containers. Alternatively, meals can be picked up directly from the Tofield Lodge by the client.
What if I decide to go out at noon?
Clients can cancel a meal for a day by calling the FCSS office at 780-662-7067 by 10:00 am that day. The client will still be billed for any unwanted meals if they have not been canceled.
How much does it cost?
Each meal is provided at a cost of $7.00.
How do I pay for the meals?
The FCSS office keeps track of all meals provided in a month. At the end of the month, a statement is mailed to the client. Payments can be made at/to:

What if I require a special diet?

Volunteer Income Tax Program
Revenue Canada partners with agencies to train volunteers so that agencies like FCSS may offer FREE Tax Preparation Services to help low-income individuals and families file their tax returns.
Tax information can be dropped off at FCSS and we will arrange for volunteers to prepare income tax and benefit returns for those eligible. To find out if you’re eligible please see the income thresholds chart below. Please contact your local FCSS office for additional information.
