Changes at Meals on Wheels

After many years of managing the Meals on Wheels program, Marion Farquharson is stepping down from that role. She will continue to be the Administrator for the Society and manage the operations and administration side of Golden Years Lodge and Valemount House.

Rashmi Narayan will coordinate the program in the interim. She is working with the Meals on Wheels committee made of board members Berna Paquette, Laurel McKirdy and Mary Anne Watt with the transition. Our cooks and drivers will be the same.

The Valemount Senior Citizens Housing Society would like to thank all those who have supported the Meals on Wheels program in 2020 and 2021

Meals on Wheels will be managed by Rashmi Narayan (250 566 1302) and Berna Paquette (250 566 0126). If you need to change your schedule, please contact them and they will do their best to accommodate requests as soon as possible. You can also call them to sign up for meals, to test a meal or to share ideas on how our program could serve you better. We will be calling clients to check if there’s any suggestions to the program they would like might like to see.

Meals on Wheels offers hot meals delivered on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays for $8 per meal. The program is available to seniors and anyone else who might be going through an illness or injury.

We’re surveying current and potential clients on other options through Meals on Wheels such as hot soups, frozen soups and meals, and other meal preferences as well. Complete the survey below by April 15.

Please consider making a cash or in-kind donation to support Meals on Wheels, as the Society can provide tax receipts as a registered charity.
