Meals on Wheels/La Popote roulante

This Meals-On-Wheels service has been a tradition of compassion in central Ottawa for more than 40 years. It was called The King’s Daughters Dinner Wagon because it was started by members. Back in 1968, the Dinner Wagon served 29 meals a week to 15 people at a cost of 75 cents a meal. In 2010, a total 115,234 hot and frozen meals were served to 1303 clients. Meals are delivered to eligible residents thanks to the time and commitment of almost 500 volunteers.

The King’s Daughters Dinner Wagon is now managed by a community based Board of Directors, five of whom are members of the Ottawa City Union. Funding comes from municipal and provincial governments, donors and client fees, as well as an annual donation from the Ottawa City Union. The service provides far more than nourishment – delivering love, hope and independence as well.

Exciting News

Exciting news! Meals on Wheels Circle has been organized to support Meals on Wheels in Ottawa. Our first meeting was held on November 26, 2014 at The King’s Daughters and Sons Apartment Lounge. We are beginning as a small Circle and would welcome new members. Members and friends are asked to support this important Christmas program of MOW.

Good afternoon members of the MOW Circle and friends,

As in past years, on December 25th, our volunteers will deliver a free turkey meal, along with a gift, Christmas cake and other goodies to 100-120 MOW clients in central Ottawa. These clients are very isolated as many will be totally on their own that day.

We have received a number of donations for parts of this meal but are still looking for support to pay for the purchase of the turkeys. In past years, we were able to either arrange for turkeys to be donated directly to The Newport Restaurant (where the meals are prepared) or we gave them a contribution of roughly $600 to cover their cost.

Please circulate this message to anyone you know who might be able to help us out. Help us make a difference at Christmas! Charitable receipts will be issued to recognize donations.

Many thanks.

Bau

Baudouin St-Cyr, Executive Director/Directeur Général
