Delivering & Safety

Your safety is our priority. Meals will be delivered between 11:30 and 1:30. For food safety reasons you must be home to receive delivery of your meal or let us know in advance if you have arranged for someone, perhaps a neighbour, to accept it for you and refrigerate it until you return.

If a volunteer tries to deliver your meal and doesn’t find you at home as expected, we will call the emergency contact you have provided to confirm your safety and well-being or, if necessary, emergency authorities.

Cancellation

A minimum of 24 hours (1 business day) notice is required for cancellation without charge. For example, to cancel a Wednesday meal, we would need to know Monday or before Tuesday 8:30 am. (You can leave a message on our voice mail).

Billing

Occasionally it may not be possible to deliver your meal; for example, a severe winter snowstorm. You would be called that morning to let you know. We recommend clients keep some non-perishable items at home for emergencies.
You will be billed monthly for the meals in the previous month. You can pay by cheque or money order. A pre-addressed envelope will be enclosed with your invoice.
