Health & Home Care Society of BC
In 1996, the Health & Home Care Society of BC (Care BC) launched one of Canada's first Chinese Meals on Wheels programs. Originally having the meals made at Mount Saint Joseph’s Hospital, it wasn’t until October 2003 that S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Simon K.Y. Lee Seniors Care Home began preparing the meals for the Chinese Meals on Wheels (CMOW) with Health & Home Care Society of BC. The program serves approximately 200 authentic Chinese meals every weekday, delivered by Cantonese or Mandarin speaking volunteers to Vancouver residents at risk of malnutrition or social isolation.

Please contact Shirley Park at 604-733-6615 for information about how to volunteer with Care BC or refer to our website at .
