Although the Langley Senior Resources Society (LSRS) has halted programs due to the coronavirus crisis its local centre is still serving up meals to go for the community.
Local seniors and residents can order meals to go for pick from the LSRS centre (20605 51b Ave.) three times a week, said Paul Goldberg, executive director of the society.
“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.
“We are currently operating as safely as possible with a skeleton staff,” Goldberg said. “As a registered charity we are still accepting donations to support these ongoing programs.”
Although the centre’s recreation programs are suspended due to the pandemic, LSRS is still providing counselling telephone support to seniors through its outreach department.
