How much does it cost?
The cost is $6.25 a meal. When a client signs up for Meals on Wheels, we require an initial week commitment with payment required at the end of the week.
How do I sign up?
Give us a call at 902-853-3115. We will take your information (contact information, dietary restrictions, days you would like to receive meals, etc.) and do our best to get you on the schedule within a week.
If we are currently at capacity for serving meals, we can put you on a waitlist.
How can I pay for my meals?
You can arrange a payment pick-up with our volunteers, who will come by to pick up payment on Fridays. You can also drop off payment to the secretary at Maplewood Lodge.
What do the meals consist of?
The meals consist of an entree, a starch side (bread/biscuit/roll), and occasional desserts.
What if I have dietary restrictions?
We can accommodate most dietary restrictions – just let us know when you sign up! Though we do cater meals depending on dietary restrictions, there is no menu to choose from.
What if I need to cancel my meal?
We do take cancellations by phone to Mike (902-853-3115) or to Krista at Maplewood Lodge (902-853-8610). Please call to cancel at least 24 hours in advance. If you call after that time to cancel a meal, we cannot guarantee that we can cancel the meal and you may still be charged for it.
