FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Northumberland County, ON – Feb. 26, 2024 – In celebration of Nutrition Month and March for Meals and just in time for the Easter holiday, Community Care Northumberland (CCN) is excited to announce the release of Easter cookie boxes in support of its Meals on Wheels program.

Each box contains 5 individually wrapped, beautifully decorated Easter cookies from Roda’s Kitchen, priced at $20.00 to support CCN’s Meals on Wheels program. This initiative provides essential frozen and hot meal deliveries to clients throughout Northumberland County. Of each $20.00 cookie box sold, $8.00 will directly support the Meals on Wheels program.

March marks National Nutrition Month and the annual March for Meals Month, pivotal moments for CCN to advocate for the significance of its Meals on Wheels program within the region. CCN dutifully delivers approximately 3,000 meals monthly to residents in Northumberland.

In addition to offering these delightful cookies, local Mayors, volunteers, and other community members will join CCN for the 27th anniversary of March for Meals this year, demonstrating their support by delivering meals as ‘Community Champions’ to our clients.

“The cookie fundraiser and March for Meals initiative are essential components in meeting the nutritional requirements of our clients and community, simultaneously amplifying awareness about this invaluable program,” said Trish Baird, Chief Executive Officer of Community Care Northumberland.

We express our gratitude to everyone for their unwavering support!
