I have trouble buying and preparing food."

Wheels for Welllness

Meals on Wheels London has provided transportation services within London for the past 20 years. Seniors over 65 and adults living with a long or short term disability have access to the program for medically related appointments. 

We received feedback from several organizations regarding the use of a reliable and affordable transportation service for health and wellness related programs.

Meals on Wheels London (MOWL) is prepared to launch a pilot project, Wheels for Wellness, offering organizations transportation services beginning in September of 2015.

Your agency would be able to contract our MOWL minivan (not wheelchair accessible) to transport your clients to agency programs, appointments, and activities. This arrangement would see MOWL provide a licenced, maintained vehicle, and an insured driver for a specific length of time. This will benefit your clients through increased access to transit. 


Your agency would: 

  • Coordinate the routing for arrival and departure from your location for up to five clients 
  • Space is dependent on the mobility needs of the persons scheduled 
  • Be responsible for your own billing to clients and providing client information 
  • Contract the use of the van for a minimum of one hour 


Potential uses may include, but are not limited to: 

  • Providing transportation to group programs, exercise classes, or appointments 
  • Circulating the van on a specific route to enhance access to a particular program 
  • Using the van to access community spaces as part of a pre-existing program for a group of clients
