Delivering balanced meals to any person who is unable to provide for themselves due to reasons of illness, accident or other disabilities, with special consideration for seniors to help them maintain independence and proper nutrition.
Sackville-Bedford Meals on Wheels was founded by two nursing students in 1986, who recognized a need for meal delivery in the area. With the help of community members, the first Board was established and the Royal Canadian Legion became the main sponsor.
Originally part of the Cobequid Multi-Service Centre, Sackville-Bedford Meals on Wheels now operates as a separate organization, serving Sackville Bedford and surrounding areas. While Halifax County Correctional Centre initially provided meals, restaurants, nursing homes, and individuals have also had the role of cook, with meals currently being made by a team at the Sackville Legion. Our main office is located at the Cobequid Health Center.
Over the years, many organizations have donated time, money, and resources to support Meals on Wheels. Many of our volunteers and staff have each dedicated more than a decade of their time and expertise to Meals on Wheels. However, fundraising to keep meal prices affordable remains a challenge.
