submitted by Fran O’Rourke for Riondel Seniors
We know there are people on the East Shore – seniors and those with medical issues – experiencing difficulty preparing meals. Others have trouble cooking for one or are just tired of their own cooking. Riondel Seniors Association is trying to initiate a meal delivery program that responds to some of these needs. Kootenay Gourmet in Balfour is willing to package and deliver meals as far as the ferry. There will be a meeting on Monday, March 11 at 4:30 pm in the Seniors room of Riondel Community Centre. We are inviting people from all over the East Shore to join us in discussing how to create a workable meal delivery program. We have volunteers to deliver meals in Riondel, but to serve the East Shore, we need volunteers from other communities.
Daniel from Kootenay Gourmet will attend the meeting with examples of his menu. Sampling plates will cost $10 each. You don’t have to pay to join the discussion, but if you are interested in the tasting, please register with Fran O’Rourke (250.225.3268). Daniel needs to know how much food to bring. And join us on March 11; this is a program the East Shore needs.
