    Home Support Services Inc.

    Our Mission:  “to provide assistance to people living in Charlotte County allowing them to remain living in their own homes”.

    Volunteers are the backbone of our Meals On Wheels program. From January 2018 to December 2018, the Fresh & Frozen MOW program provided 35,591 meals in Charlotte County. Each day with the exception of Christmas day, we have two sets volunteers to deliver hot meals to those who live in St. Stephen (between 20-25 meals for each team). We keep a close watch on the weather and if there is a bad storm coming, we will send out two meals the day before.  We did cancel meals on January 21, and February 13, as the roads and walkways were just too icy.  Therefore, you see it is a big undertaking with many moving parts and the volunteers are the superstars who make this happen. Many of our clients are just as happy to see the volunteers, as they are to get a hot meal.

    That being said we are always in need of more volunteers if you have an hour or two a month that you can spare, please call Home Support Services at 466-1759. My Name Is Amber Feeney and I would be very happy to answer all questions you might have.

    Thank you,

    Community Food Smart St. Stephen.

    We are excited to kick off a Community Food Smart program here in St. Stephen!

    What we are: Community Food Smart is a bulk food buying club for individuals and families keen on purchasing quality fruits and vegetables at affordable prices, sourced from local farmers when possible.
    Community Food Smart operates through a network of community partners who collect orders, provide volunteers, and distribute food bags to their members each month.
    Together, these partners donate their time and effort to make each area’s food buying club a success. 

    How do I join: Members can place an order for one or two fresh produce bags a month. The price of a food bag is $15. There is also a membership fee of $10. Please email one of our distributors to join.

    Getting involved: Volunteers help sort and pack bags for same day delivery, if you’d like to join the team please email rsnelgrovefood@gmail.com.

    Want to become a distributor? Email rsnelgrovefood@gmail.com for more information.

    What’s in a bag: Bags are brimming with produce carefully selected to ensure freshness, affordability and variety.
    We consider everything from what’s in season, what’s
    available at a fair price and what’s available from local farmers.
    Standard items include apples, bananas, oranges, potatoes, onions and carrots. The rest of the items will vary each month.
