Thanksgiving meals being prepared for delivery
by MNO Midland staff.
On October 8, the Métis Nation of Ontario (MNO) Community Wellness Coordinators from the Midland office, Tracy Bald and Kaitlyn Ouimette, prepared a Thanksgiving meal as part of their Autumn Community Kitchen event.
Meals were giving to our elderly and isolated clients who may have gone without a holiday meal this year. The meal included roasted turkey, stuffing, gravy, mashed potatoes, turnip, roasted butternut soup and some sweet treats. Twenty four meals were given out.
Some of the feedback received included; “Thank you so much for thinking of me”, “I no longer have family around to celebrate the holidays with. This was such a nice treat, thank you.” And I would like to say it was good and we enjoyed it.”
Special thank you to Lorraine Mountney for “volunteer” assisting with preparing the meal and all the MNO Midland staff dedicated to quality control.
