Meals and Groceries
To help seniors maintain a well-balanced diet, Snug Cove House sponsors a program of nutritious meals delivered to your door. Meals are made in a commercial kitchen in Burnaby, flash frozen and delivered every two weeks by Bowen volunteers. The meals enable the elderly or infirm to maintain a well-balanced diet at a reasonable price. A few minutes in the microwave and they are ready for the table. Menus can be viewed at bettermeals.ca or pick up a menu at Cates Hill Pharmacy. Please do not place your orders directly on-line or by phone to Better Meals. Rather, call Sue Ritchie at 604 947-0225.
