“We know the importance of the Langley seniors centres still being able to still support isolated seniors throughout the community, and have created the meals to go program for those seniors who cannot cook for themselves,” he said.

There are a variety of fresh cooked meals available for $6 each, as well as frozen meal for $5 or soup for $3.

Orders over $50 can be charged to a credit card, otherwise the centre is accepting cash. Meals can be picked up from the side door of the centre between 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Tuesdays, Wednesdays or Thursdays.

“We will be continuing the meals to go program in May and beyond until our centre is reopened to the public,” Goldberg noted.

The centre is one of many businesses that have been forced to layoff staff.
