Local Meals On Wheels Back On Their Feet

 
 

LETHBRIDGE - After receiving emergency funding from City Council in 2012 due to a large financial deficit, Meals on Wheels is well positioned to operate with a balanced budget this year and project to have a surplus in 2014.

 

The organization received $30,000 in emergency funding and an additional $15,000 for a consultant to provide an operational and strategic review.

 

In the past year, they upgraded their meal delivery system which has greatly reduced the number of labour hours required to get out the meals. They also changed the fee structure for clients so it's now based on their income and overall more clients are paying a higher meal price than they were a year ago.

 

Executive Director Jennifer Petracek-Kolb says the organization is now more efficient , better at expense management and is well positioned to grow.
