Windsor, ON: ENWIN’s Community Support program partnered with the VON (Victorian Order of Nurses) volunteer program Meals on Wheels, to help deliver meals to those unable to shop or cook for themselves.

“ENWIN’s continued support of VON’s Meals on Wheels Program is a true testament to the power of community support,” says Christine Brush, Meals on Wheels Program Coordinator. “VON believes that everyone has the right to care and service regardless of their circumstances.  The generosity of ENWIN allows VON to continue serving our communities most vulnerable.”

ENWIN’s Community Support Committee, a group of employee volunteers from across the company, voted unanimously to support the Meals on Wheels initiative. ENWIN will provide 200 free meals to those in need within the City of Windsor

“Every meal counts, and no one should go hungry,” added Barbara Peirce Marshall, Manager of Corporate Communications at ENWIN. “We are proud that our Community Support Committee chose to support those who most need our help in the community.” 

Meals on Wheels assists seniors, people recovering from illness or surgery and people with disabilities, helping them maintain their independence at home and offering a connection with a caring community.  

Meals on Wheels meals are delivered weekly by VON volunteers. Meals are prepared in government-inspected kitchens by volunteers or under contract between VON and commercial or institutional kitchens.
