“We are hoping this initiative with bring attention to our hot Meals on Wheels service available in Campbellford.” said Trish Baird – Executive Director of Community Care Northumberland.  “It’s more than meal; it’s also a quick security check on a loved one.”

Community Care Northumberland’s hot meals provider in Hastings is Banjos Grill, located at 3 Bridge Street South.  The Meals on Wheels program is available to seniors and adults with disabilities who cannot cook for themselves or easily shop for groceries for $6.00 per meal.  Local volunteers pick up the packed meals there at 11:45 am and deliver them directly to client’s home over the lunch hour.  This service operates on Wednesdays.

Banjo’s, who have been working in partnership with CCN for many years, provides meals that are hearty in portion and for convenience; clients are also billed at the end of the month.

“The Meals on Wheels program allows people to live in the home where they have spent their adult lives creating memories,” said Baird.  “It takes some of the stress off of the shoulders of loved ones and caregivers and it provides relief and comfort.”

Do you know someone in the Town of Hastings who could benefit from the Meals on Wheels program?  Call Community Care Northumberland office in Hastings (705)696-3891 or in Campbellford at (705)653-1411.
