Frozen Dinners for Seniors


Dinners For Seniors of Powell River - Available to all seniors in the Powell River district.
There seems to be a misunderstanding about the home cooked frozen dinners
we are offering to the Seniors of Powell River.
These dinners are made for Seniors living alone, or living together and wanting a healthy, affordable meal, whether as a change of pace from their regular meal,
a desire to have something different, or just a meal in a hurry after a busy day.
It is also geared for those that do not like to cook, or want to cook all the time, or for those that cannot cook for themselves, or just the desire to have someone else's cooking for a change.
It is also for those that provide meals for their parents who can no longer cook for themselves. The Seniors Association is here for you!
Check out our frozen dinners for the Senior Citizens of Powell River
On our menu at present we have:
Full Turkey Dinner
Turkey Chow Mein
Turkey Stew
Turkey Shepherd's Pie (for 2 people or for one.)
Beef Stew
Roast Beef Dinner
Swiss Steak Dinner
Italian Spaghetti
Pork Tenderloin Dinner
Chinese Pork with Rice and Veggies.
Chicken Dinner
Butter Chicken & Rice

All of these dinners are priced at our cost, no profit to our Association.
These meals are priced at cost so prices do fluctuate as the cost of ingredients change. We try to take advantage of specials so the price does vary.
At present our meals are priced from $3 to $6

We are always adding more items and are open to suggestions.
We are trying to make your life a bit easier.

If you want a dinner as a fill in for the evening, you do not want to cook, or are alone, or just don't feel like cooking for one - PLEASE call Gene at 604 485 5894
Quote from Gene " I am likely our best customer because some nights I just can't be bothered with cooking for one so I will buy a dinner, but I do love to cook and enjoy cooking these meals to freeze.....all are prepared with the best ingredients, and made as if I am cooking for guests in my home. With the help of our volunteers we are able to keep a selection in our freezers.
We try to buy things that are on sale and try to keep the cost as low as we can.
Please call, buy the dinners and enjoy the meals we cook for you' keep a couple on hand in your freezer for the days you don't have the time or the desire to cook for yourself.
Call Gene at 604 485 5894 and arrange to pick up meals for you or your parents.
