Welcome! My name is Vicky Wallace. I am a local Kelowna Play Therapist, mom of two boys (4 and 5) and the owner of Springfield Kids Play Therapy. (Nothing to do with food, you say, but let me explain how this genius idea came to be…)
Due to Covid-19 safety protocols, I had to stop providing face to face support services to children and their parents. The first week this all happened, I was very emotionally affected. I felt so useless and I hated that feeling. I kept thinking about people’s mental health and the increase in risk factors due to mandatory isolation and parents losing their regular supports. I was also worried about how other small businesses would survive this..
For myself, trying to meal plan and organize dinner after another day of having no help, with confused and dysregulated children, is the definition of stressful. I think so many people want to find a way to feel useful and connected during these uncertain times and feeding someone is great way to remind them we care. Together, we can show people they haven’t been forgotten. You can be a part of this caring movement with the simple action of ordering dinner.
Each family meal purchased by the public ($40), will provide a free meal to a family in need.
You can also buy a 'Dinnergram' ($50), which gets you dinner for your family, as well as one for someone of your choice. A friend, your parents, neighbour, mail carrier, family doctor (you get the point). You can add a feel good personalized note and the price includes a contribution back into the food security fund.
The Dinnergram could be the virtual replacement for taking turns hosting each other for dinner. Buy for your friends one week, they buy for you the next? You could even eat over video chat because you are eating the same thing! (if you do this, please send us proof!)
This initiative supports distancing efforts as meals will be delivered to the doorstep without needing any interaction beyond a friendly wave through the window.
We want to give the hosting restaurants a few days notice and an exact order number so they can minimize food waste and plan accordingly. As the orders grow, we can work with several restaurants at a time to give you guys more choices.
We appreciate your feedback.
