Call for Expressions of Interest in Providing Meals on Wheels on Mayne Island

Background summary of Meals on Wheels Service:
Meals on Wheels is a program where hot nutritious meals are professionally prepared and packaged in foil containers at lunch time and delivered via a net work of volunteers to clients at their homes in the community.

The maximum is three/four meals per client per week with delivery 3 days per week (Monday, Wednesday and Friday). At present there are 5 clients with total meals served of approximately 30 meals.

Meal provider summary:
Contracted providers bill Greenwoods Elder Care Society a fixed charge of $10 per meal served (plus HST) which is to cover all preparation costs except for the cost of containers (ordered from Victoria Box and Paper with the bill sent to Greenwoods).

A simple spreadsheet identifying clients and days meals are provided is to be sent in monthly to Greenwoods. They must have the ability to offer some dietary modifications as requested,ie diabetic, vegetarian. The meal is normally to consist of, entree and dessert.

Premises where meals prepared is to be licensed by Capital Health Region.

Use of email for communication with the Salt Spring coordinator would be an asset when sending in monthly tallies and client information.

For further information contact Catherine Bennett, MOW administrator Greenwoods Elder Care Society. Please respond by Tuesday June 26th. Because of the tight time frame involved I will accept a letter of interest via my home email
