This year’s Meals to Go menu inspired Councillor Don Vassiliadis and Dean Pappas to stop in to the Community Care Peterborough (CCP) office to offer their support for this important fundraiser.

Off the heels of the Tim Hortons Smile Cookie campaign, Community Care Peterborough is sold out of its Meals to Go lunches for the May 17th delivery in Peterborough but is still accepting orders for its May 31st delivery of this year’s Greek inspired menu.
$10 per person lunches delivered by Community Care’s Meals on Wheels volunteers to local businesses in Peterborough and Lakefield include:
A Greek salad made with romaine lettuce, cucumber, tomato, red onion, black olives, feta cheese and homemade Greek dressing; and
- A chicken tzatziki pita, made with diced chicken on a fresh pita with lettuce, cucumber, grape tomatoes, red onion, black olives, feta cheese and creamy tzatziki sauce; and
- Fresh fruit cup medley of cantaloupe, blueberries and grapes
There are vegetarian, gluten free and lactose free menu options also available upon request.
Want more Greek food and culture? Did you know that the Greek Festival is returning this year to Peterborough?
On Sunday, June 11th at 12:00 – 7:00 pm at the Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church (406 Parkhill Road East in Peterborough), the Greek Festival of music, dancers and food will return after its Covid hiatus.
“Each delivery will receive a copy of the upcoming Greek Festival event poster,” said Alicia Vandine – Donor Relations and Communications Lead. “It’s a great cross promotion to celebrate this year’s Greek inspired Meals to Go menu. We are happy to help spread the word and encourage residents to attend this wonderful community based, cultural event on June 11th too.”
