Meals on Wheels (MOW)
The Eganville & District Seniors Association (EDS) has partnered with the Rio Tap & Grill, a local restaurant, to deliver meals every Tuesday and Friday to clients in the surrounding area. Volunteer drivers deliver the meals right to the doorstep of MOW clients. The meals include soup or salad, a bun and dessert with every main course. The meals are very accommodating to personal preference and also consider dietary intolerances. Diabetic desserts are offered with no sugar content, and the meal components are very interchangeable. Due to generous donations from local organizations, Eganville Rotary Club, Royal Bank of Canada and OCSA to name a few, we are able to subsidize the meals to only cost clients $7. Note: Our meals are currently $5.50 as part of a donation from OCSA. The meals are delivered in our service area but if an individual wishes to purchase MOW and lives outside this area, special accommodations might be made.
Clients must be over the age of 65 or disabled or recently discharged from hospital to sign up for this service. If interested, provide the staff with all the necessary medical information as well as any food allergies or special diet requirements.
