HALDIMAND—Haldimand Community Senior Support Services (HNCSSS) has a history of helping local seniors. One of the ways they do so is through their meal delivery service and, although the service was temporarily delayed due to COVID-19, both hot and frozen meal options are now available.
“Our frozen meals are ordered and delivered every two weeks. They are $40 for a package of seven entrees. These are nutritionally balanced entrees,” said Leila Thompson, Program Manager for the Caledonia, Cayuga, and Hagersville area. “The hot meals are a full meal delivered at the lunch hour by volunteers. The meals are delivered without contact to the client – the volunteer will knock at the door, leave the meal, and step back to watch the client take the meal into their home. This also provides a good security check for the client and if a client does not respond at the door, an emergency contact on their file is called to ensure the client is well.”
Clients of the frozen meal plan can choose from a menu of over 45 different entrees, with selections available for a wide range of dietary needs including diabetic, low fat, low sodium, lactose free, renal, and pureed diets.
