Red Deer and District FCSS is offering a new program, the Rural Frozen Meal Delivery Program to residents of Red Deer County, the Town of Bowden, the Village of Delburne, the Village of Elnora and the Town of Penhold.
Meals are being delivered weekly to individuals and families in need as a result of self-isolation during the Covid-19 pandemic. All meals are provided at cost, with free delivery directly to residents on a weekly basis.
“The program fills an important need in rural communities where meal delivery is not always an easy option. Interested individuals fill out and submit an application form about their delivery,” said Red Deer County Community Services Manager Jo-Ann Symington.
“Applications are reviewed to determine address, phone number, and any special instructions about the delivery. Staff will then contact the individual to notify them that the delivery will be arriving.”
Meals are commercially prepared and follow the Canada Food Guide. Both individual and family meals are available, with a wide range of different options.
