Senior meal delivery franchise system Heart to Home Meals and its franchisees have donated $2,000 to the Royal Canadian Legion’s Poppy Campaign, which raises funds each year to support veterans and their families.
Heart to Home Meals is a registered supplier with Veterans Affairs Canada and works with the Veteran’s Independence Program, which helps Canadian veterans remain healthy and independent in their own homes.
“We have developed great relationships with these courageous individuals and wanted to do something as a company to acknowledge their bravery and sacrifice,” says Heart to Home Meals’ president, Michael Gazer.
“I have been a customer of Heart to Home Meals through the program for five years,” says Walter Jocey, a 91-year-old Second World War veteran. “My meals are free and because they deliver directly to my freezer, I do not have to worry about getting to the store. This is a huge help because I am not able to get out and about as much anymore.”
