Coquitlam seniors who are connected to one of the city’s two pavilions can continue to get frozen meals this fall.

But as of today (Tuesday), meal delivery and pick-up are on Tuesdays only — and at both Dogwood and Glen Pine pavilions from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. 

There is no service for the weeks of Sept. 7 and Oct. 12 due to stat holidays.

Starting Sept. 8, pavilion members wanting a homemade meal can place their orders between 8:30 a.m. Wednesday and 2 p.m. Sunday for deliveries the next Tuesday.

Members can buy up to four meals; however, the menu selections will be limited compared with previous months, according to a city news release. 

The cost is $7.50 per meal. To put in an order, visit coquitlam.ca/meals.

Since the program was launched last spring, when the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown hit, more than 26,000 dozen meals have been prepared for isolated seniors in the Tri-Cities; those meals have been either collected at Dogwood in person or delivered by volunteers including Coun. Steve Kim.

Now, with the health restrictions easing, the city plans to reopen the Dogwood and Glen Pine pavilion cafés — with volunteer support.

Helpers who have food preparation and customer service skills are asked to apply via coquitlam.ca/volunteer (click the link in the Volunteering in Community Centres section).

Meanwhile, other services for Coquitlam seniors include:

  • Pre-registered programs and activity groups starting Sept. 8 at Dogwood and Glen Pine pavilions (coquitlam.ca/registration)
  • The Social Connections program, which connects seniors with volunteers who provide social contact with weekly phone calls (visit coquitlam.ca/socialconnections)
  • Activities and resources for residents ages 50-plus and up at CoquitlamSPIRIT (coquitlam.ca/spirit) 
  • Reduced drop-in recreation rates through the ONE PASS discount card (coquitlam.ca/onepass).
