No one wants to go hungry. Feeling alone and hungry is worse. Choosing between paying for rent and paying for food is a decision many of our clients must make. Meals on Wheels London supports local seniors and adults living with disabilities so they are not burdened with this stress. We are leading the fight in addressing social isolation and hunger among our local seniors. In order for us to continue providing valuable, life-saving services to our clients, we are required over 25% of it's overall budget. This comes from you - our own community!
The Gift of Food 2018
2017 was the first annual event for the Gift of Food and we're so excited to be back!
Join us November 27th, 2018 (Giving Tuesday) as we come together as a community to support local seniors. Meals on Wheels serves over 2200 Londoners each year, many of whom are relying on subsidized meals and transporation to wellness related appointments. As we approach the holiday season, we felt it was important, to gather to give the gift of food as all proceeds will go to support meals and rides to wellness related appointments for Seniors who cannot afford them.
Your ticket includes your first round, food and a chance to win some amazing prizes!
VIP Admission includes all the above and 2 bottles of wine for you or to share! As well, as your name in draws for select prizes

March for Meals 2019
MEALS ON WHEELS LONDON INVITES YOU TO WALK, RUN & HAVE FUN AT MARCH FOR MEALS 2019!
March for Meals our annual walk-a-thon/silent auction is back for another year of fun, exercise, community, fundraising and more! We look forward to welcoming hundreds of participants of all ages to BMO Centre on Friday, March 22 from 2-4pm for a fun afternoon of walking, connecting with local vendors, participating in a silent auction and raising funds and awareness for Meals on Wheels London to reach the goal with the support of this event to raise $50,000 during the month of March.
Meals on Wheels is faced with an unprecedented need in London to continue providing programs and services to seniors and adults living with disabilities. Our population is aging rapidly and as a result we are forced to fundraise nearly 30% of our revenue so we can continue to support people who rely on us. Keeping people in their own homes living with independence to make their own choices is so important in maintaining the overall health and wellness of individuals while also relieving pressures on the health care system and long-term care facilities.
Meals on Wheels has seen great success through the support of the London Community through 400+ volunteers and donations from individuals. We are now appealing to the corporations, businesses and individuals across this city who would like to attend this event support a local organization who has been consistently serving London for almost 50 years. Our reputation speaks for itself and we would like Londoners to partner with us in the fight against food insecurity and social isolation for our local seniors.
MARCH FOR MEALS 2019 - A FUNDRAISING WALK-A-THON FOR PEOPLE OF ALL AGES!

2PM – 4PM
BMO CENTRE – 295 RECTORY STREET

Let's Do Lunch!
We had such great support from this community for our Let's Do Lunch Fundraisers! Lunch combos cost $20 each and, once again, the purchase of each lunch also fed 3 other people in London who are struggling with food insecurity.
We invited new community partners to join us and had even more variety this time from local restaurants that everyone RAVED over!
