"Ordering meals has been a lifesaver.
I have trouble buying and preparing food."

Honoured to be Award Recipient

We are excited to share that Meals on Wheels London and Youth Opportunities Unlimited won an award at the Pillar Community Innovation Awards ceremony November 19, 2013. 

Over 700 people gathered at the Convention Centre to celebrate non-profits and charities, and the individuals, businesses and government sector organizations who work with them to make our community brighter.  Awards were handed out for Community Innovation, Community Leadership, Community Impact, and Community Collaboration.  Below are highlights from our nomination:  

Community Collaboration - Meals on Wheels London & Youth Opportunities Unlimited
Meals on Wheels London and Youth Opportunities Unlimited (YOU) have created a collaborative partnership that provides mutually beneficial and sustainable outcomes to both these two non-profits and the broader community. The collaboration, creating meals for distribution in YOU Made It Café’s kitchen, also encourages connection between youth and senior populations. Under the supervision of a Red Seal certified chef, youth employed at YOU Made It Café gain valuable skills training and experience in the production of high quality, large volume, nutritious meals made in a consistent manner and to an exacting schedule. Each week, on average, 900 meals are prepared and then delivered by dedicated Meals on Wheels volunteers. Seniors enjoy healthier meals daily, have higher levels of energy, and remain in their own homes, and families have peace of mind knowing their loved ones are eating properly. At the same time, the youth gain insight into the daily challenges faced by many seniors and those with disabilities in the community.

Thank you to everyone who supports our organizations and the great work that we do for youth and seniors in the community!
