We are in unprecedented times right now, as we all try to keep everyone as safe as possible. At this time, we are putting our resources and energies into programs that serve the most vulnerable.
Free Frozen Meals
You can ask for SIRCH meals at the food banks, and you can get take-out frozen meals directly from SIRCH Central:
Saturdays and Sundays, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., starting Saturday, March 28, 2020
SIRCH Central, 2 Victoria Street, Haliburton (next to the laundromat)
Free. We want to support as many people as possible. Please ask for just what you will use this weekend and leave some for your neighbours.
We will be using social distancing protocols to help keep people safe. We prepare and package the meals under the very strict COVID-19 protocols to ensure meals are prepared in compliance with the latest food-handling and sanitation guidelines. No one will be allowed inside the building. The meals will be put into bags and brought out to you.
Each frozen meal comes with heating instructions and a nutritional label. Some meals are suitable for diabetics or others with special diets. Local produce is used whenever possible and groceries are purchased locally.
Resources For Families
During these challenging times, we want to make it easier for people to access information and resources to support themselves and their loved ones.
Here are some resources we’ve created for you:
Will you help us help others?
Now with the coronavirus, the demand for healthy, prepared meals has drastically increased.
During the pandemic and until our community is back on its feet, our goal is to increase the number of prepared meals from 400 to 1,400 meals each month.
