Sylvan Lake Lodge’s Meals on Wheels program is looking for volunteers to deliver food to seniors.
Many of the program’s volunteers travel south for the winter, leaving the program short-handed during that time, according to Lodge dietary co-ordinator Wanda Dahlgren.
The program has been running for the past 25 years, and sees senior clients charged $6.50 a day for meals with meat, potatoes, vegetables and soup.
“Were trying to keep that cost low for people who can’t go out and get a proper meal,” said Dahlgren.
Volunteers are required to have a valid driver’s licence and a reliable vehicle, as they’re responsible for picking up food from the Lodge and delivering it to clients.
“We need one driver for one week and it takes a good hour to deliver meals,” said Dahlgren. “We need committed drivers to volunteer once a month or once every other month.”
For more information on how to volunteer, contact Dahlgren at 403-887-2555.
