Meals on Wheels

Our Corporate Meals on Wheels Volunteer Program gives employees an opportunity to enjoy ‘a special kind of lunch ’ by helping to deliver meals to home-bound seniors during their lunch hour.

How the program works:
Spend 2 hours, a minimum of once a month, delivering meals to people in need.

Dixon Hall’s bus will pick you up from your office between 11:30 am and 11:45 am and bring you directly to our office at 192 Carlton St. You are assigned a route to deliver meals along with your co-workers. You are driven back to your office between 1:30 pm to 2:00 pm.

We have many corporate volunteer teams who make our Meals on Wheels program possible, including these organizations:

  • BMO Financial
  • Great West Life/Canada Life
  • Directorate of Ontario
  • Industrial Alliance
  • Royal Bank of Canada: Finance, Investor Services, Systems & IT, Smart Card, Personal & Commercial Banking, Business Banking, Digital Marketing & Strategy; King & Berkley Branch
