KITCHEN FUNDRAISER

As many of you know, in 2020 after the arrival of covid-19, our centre created a Frozen Meal Program for seniors here in Edmonton and the surrounding area.  Since then we have seen a steady increase in the number of clients we are serving which has been fantastic!
However, the kitchen here at our centre is not a commercial kitchen. As a result, it is very labor-intensive for us to make all of the entrees, soups, muffins, biscuits, etc. especially as we have only 1 part-time staff, 1 part-time contractor chef and we even had to redeploy one of our staff to help. In addition, we are unable to ask our amazing volunteers to help due to the current covid-19 restrictions.

 

WE HAVE A GOAL!

  • We are hosting a few fundraising initiatives in the hopes of raising $8000.
  • This will allow us to buy a commercial mixer and attachments that will help significantly in all areas of prepping our meals, soups, and baked goods!
