Peter - A Retiree
Peter has been delivering Meals on Wheels for the past year and has become a very valued member of the team! Hailing from Zurich, Switzerland Peter moved to Calgary at the age of 20 to work as a baker. After a year, Peter set out on a quest to see the Pacific Ocean and ended up working at a new Four Seasons hotel in Vancouver. Through working in various hotels Peter became familiar with Tauck tour company where he then worked for 25 years as one of their most beloved tour director managers, travelling all across the globe.
During this time, around 25 years ago, Peter became ill with yellow jaundice when living in North Vancouver. He received Meals on Wheels for three months while he was recovering and it was such a help to him that he decided he would volunteer when he retired. And he did!
He says, “I always knew it would be Meals on Wheels. I used to tell the tour guests that was my retirement plan”.
The best part about the role for Peter is visiting with the clients each day, he enjoys getting to know the people that he serves and would recommend Meals on Wheels volunteering for anyone who is compassionate and service orientated.
