“The convenience of a corner store delivered to your door!”

The Edmonton Meals on Wheels Grocery Bag program helps get basic grocery items to people who cannot shop on their own. The Grocery Bag offers a wide variety of foods chosen to provide a healthy diet based on Canada’s Food Guide. Produce selections include an assortment of either vegetables or fruit for one or two people.

Who can use the program?

The Grocery Bag® is open to anyone who:

  • is not physically able to grocery shop
  • has difficulty getting to a grocery store
  • has limited help with shopping and cannot shop on their own
  • lives in Edmonton
  • the program is also open to families providing assistance to a loved one or individuals recovering from hospitalization, illness, injury or respite.

Groceries are delivered by a screened and security-checked Meals on Wheels volunteer. Someone must be home to receive the order. The Grocery Bag is possible due to the generous support of Save-On-Foods (Jasper Avenue location).
