Feeling hungry? Does this meal look appetizing?

Roast pork with gravy, mashed potatoes and vegetables might be a typical dinner in most of our homes, but for Airdrie residents who are unable to cook a meal for themselves it is only a memory.

How about some lentil soup and a tuna sandwich for lunch? If you can’t get out for groceries any longer, even a sandwich can be beyond reach.

That’s where Airdrie Meals on Wheels can help. The meal pictured here is one our clients received recently, and includes entree, soup, sandwich, tossed salad, and even dessert of yummy bread pudding. It is typical of the meals prepared and delivered to our clients.

If you or a loved one are in need of a little help, whether temporarily or permanently, there’s no need to dream of such a meal any longer.
