Purchase ​meals​ ​on​ ​a​ ​first​ ​come,​ ​first served​ ​basis.​ ​We​ ​make​ ​extras meals on prep nights, which are ​available​ ​for​ ​sale.​ ​Join​ ​our​ ​Facebook​ ​page to​ ​be​ ​the​ ​first​ ​to​ ​find​ ​out​ ​what’s​ ​for​ ​sale​ ​each​ ​week.

Giving Back

There​ ​are​ ​always​ ​people​ ​in​ ​need​ ​in​ ​our​ ​community​ ​and​ ​we​ ​want​ ​to​ ​offer​ ​help​ ​when​ ​we​ ​can. Each​ ​meal​ ​prep​ ​night,​ ​extra​ ​meals​ ​will​ ​be​ ​made​ ​to​ ​leave​ ​in​ ​the​ ​church​ ​freezer​ ​for​ ​community members.​ ​If​ ​you​ ​know​ ​​someone​ ​who​ ​could​ ​benefit​ ​from​ ​a​ ​meal​ ​or​ ​two,​ ​please​ ​contact Colwood​ ​Pentecostal​ ​Church​ ​at​ ​250-478-7113.

Cancelation Policy

Because groceries are purchased and the prep list is made well in advance of each meal prep, we need 4 days notice to cancel with no penalty. If you cancel with less than 4 days notice, you will need to either find a replacement who will take on your order or we require a $25 admin fee to readjust meal numbers.

In cases when we need to cancel a meal prep event, participants will have first priority of any 'take me meals' that are prepared on the following meal prep event at $12 per meal.

"The biggest benefit to my family is the time I get back to spend with my kids going over homework or hearing about their days. Spending a couple of hours in the evening on meal prep nights saves me a least double that amount of time in my kitchen. Instead of cooking dinner I can sit down and read with my kids on those busy weeknights when family time is hard to come by." - A. K.
