For some, at this difficult time there is a free lunch — but more like a free meal, really.

A Catered Affair, owned by Tim and Chantal McRae of Vankleek Hill, posted an announcement of free meals recently on their Facebook page.

On the Facebook page, it reported that Jason Baines, Vice President of J.Lanfranco Fasteners Systems Inc. had made a very generous donation of 500 meals to be prepared by A Catered Affair.
“We will be offering these to the elderly, the food bank, front of the line workers as well as anyone who may need a little assistance during this difficult time. Please PM if you have a loved one in need.

They are challenging other businesses and individuals alike who might want to make donations of additional meals to this great cause!

Kiana McRae was called into service for meal prep, by parents Tim and Chantal McRae.

If you know of anyone who could benefit from one of these meals, please send a Facebook message to A Catered Affair.
