Meals on Wheels Dream Kitchen Update 

CSC is thrilled to announce that we have passed the halfway mark of our $600,000 capital campaign! We want to thank all of our supporters who believe in this dream as much as we do at CSC - a vision of a tender, loving care kitchen that will enable seniors and adults with disabilities to stay in their own homes with independence and dignity. Pictured above is Len Brunen of Grand River Contracting with CSC Executive Director Dale Howatt in what will one day be the new kitchen. As we move forward, we will provide regular updates on all the exciting events that will unfold to make our dream come true.

One of the ways you can help us reach our goal is by purchasing a 2015 Leejay Levene Calendar. They are $10 each. If you would like to order a calendar, would like information about the kitchen, or would like to make a donation, please contact Rosalind at 519-772-8787 ext. 225 or rosalindh@cscmow.org. You can also donate online.

Donate to Help Build the Kitchen

Take Our New Wheels For a Spin!

You can volunteer to drive clients in our new Venza from Heffner ToyotaCSC is seeking volunteer drivers to transport clients to medical appointments, community dining sites, and grocery shopping.  We are also seeking drivers to deliver nutritious meals during noon hour. 

Many of our clients live alone and love to see a smiling face. You can make a difference in the lives of seniors and adults with disabilities by helping them feel a part of the community, reducing isolation and loneliness. You let us know when you're available and we'll schedule your rides during those times. Mileage reimbursement is available if you are using your own vehicle. If you’re interested in helping, please call 519-772-8787 and ask for Ann at ext. 205 or in Cambridge ask for Michael at ext. 253.

Last 20 Tacofest Tickets 

On Friday May 2nd at 12pm, Waterloo Region Tacofest tickets officially went on sale on our eventbrite site. It took only three minutes for our amazing community supporters to snatch up all 380 tickets that were available online. 

Thanks to our generous taco and craft beer suppliers for their contributions which absolutely make the night.  If you are still hoping to get in the door, there will be 20 tickets available for purchase through special online auctions in the coming weeks.  

Tacofest is happening on Friday July 4th, 2014 from 6pm to 11pm at THEMUSEUM in downtown Kitchener, Ontario. Featuring ten local restaurants and their finest tacos, ten local craft breweries serving their best brews, Latin music and more fun than you can shake a maraca at, you’ll be talking about Tacofest all year long.  All proceeds will go to CSC’s Meals on Wheels subsidy program, which ensures seniors and adults with disabilities in our community have access to a hot, nutritious meal regardless of income.
