2019 Empowering Winner
Meals Made Simple
To address food security, Greener Village, home of the Fredericton Food Bank, has designed the Meals Made Simple Program (MMS), a virtual cookbook and app to provide clients with recipes for healthy, low-cost meals. This program would allow clients with limited funds to go grocery shopping and have an enjoyable, stress-free experience. The app will provide important nutritional information for the meals, giving clients a sense of comfort and pride that they are making healthy meals for their families. The app will also feature "live pricing" from various grocery stores to calculate the costs of meals. The MMS app will not only provide the community with another food resource, but also will attempt to address some causes of why people access food banks (poor money management or inefficient use of resources).
