Rural Routes – Meals on Wheels

Rural Routes

Meals on Wheels PEI’s Rural Routes Project aims to meet the growing need for accessible, healthy, prepared meals for seniors and people with disabilities in areas that are currently un-served or underserved by Meals on Wheels Chapters in Prince Edward Island.

In partnership with local food vendors, community groups and current Meals on Wheels Chapters, Rural Routes will provide frozen meals that will be prepared weekly and delivered to a central location in the communities where they are needed.

Volunteers will then deliver these meals in their communities.

Meals will be sold for $5/meal and will include a roll, entree and small dessert.

This program could be beneficial if you:
– Are a senior
– In recovery from an illness or injury/surgery
– In need of healthier meals
– Able to pay a small delivery fee (additional assistance may be provided)
– Living in rural PEI or have been unable to access Meals on Wheels services
