Meals on Wheels
Operated by Care BC, Meals on Wheels has been delivering hot, nutritious meals and social interaction to isolated Vancouver and Richmond residents since 1967. In 1996, Care BC launched the first ever Chinese Meals on Wheels program in Canada, and the province’s first Meals on Bikes program in 2007. In 2010 alone, 100,119 meals were served in Vancouver and Richmond, and this need continues to grow.
The Health and Home Care Society of BC is an independent and BC-based not-for-profit organization. Since 1898, we have taken care of British Columbians through healthcare initiatives tailored to the communities we serve.
