Are you a senior isolating during the Covid-19 pandemic? We’re here to help!
We’ve partnered with United Way and BC211 to offer support during this pandemic. To sign-up, simply follow this link!
In response to the need for physical distancing, we have a list of services that we can offer with minimal or no contact, each of which are outlined below:
Grocery Shopping Pickup and Delivery–
Tuesdays: Dufferin Country Grocer
Fridays: Country Club Save-On Foods
Once registered for our grocery service, a SSSC volunteer will call the client the day before their scheduled grocery shop to receive the grocery list.
NFLA will initially pay for groceries; clients will reimburse the agency. The volunteer will deliver groceries and the receipt.
Payment is collected by NFLA bookkeeper the next business day. We accept E-transfer, Visa, Mastercard, Amex, and cheque.
Deliveries of prepared meals occur each Thursday. Menu options are available from Nanaimo Foodshare.
To find out the upcoming week’s menu, contact Sacia Burton: email@example.com or (250) 754-3331 ext. 716
