Experience the Evergreen, a public restaurant located inside the Evergreen Seniors Community Centre. Come out and give us a try! We offer a daily hot lunch special featuring ‘made from scratch’ meals and wide variety of soup, sandwiches, salads and home baked desserts. The cost is affordable and the servings are healthy and generous.
Our ‘meals to go service’ is an affordable and convenient service. A volunteer will also deliver meals should you live in the immediate area of the Evergreen Seniors Community Centre. Please call 519-823-1291 x 2696 to explore this convenient option.
See you in the Evergreen Restaurant!
Hours: Monday to Friday, 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., with breakfast and menu items served during this time. Featured hot lunch is served from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Follow your nose to the heart of Evergreen and enjoy the smells, sounds and warmth of the dining room and kitchen. Without the good food and camaraderie from the Evergreen kitchen, the Seniors Centre would be simply a series of meeting rooms.
Every weekday people partake of hearty bacon and egg breakfasts, and such aromatic meals as chicken paprikash, cod veracruz, roast beef and ribs. Some days, as many as eighty people are served, and on special occasions such as Christmas or Thanksgiving, the staff cook for over two hundred.
The menu is nutritionally balanced and made on location as much as possible. The smell of hot fruit turnovers and homemade meat pies wafting out of the oven attests to that fact.
Jocelynn Desroches has 31 years experience in the kitchen. She does the planning and organizing, menu choices and recipes.
She’s helped by a large contingent of volunteers, three or four a day, who work from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm once a week. A free delivery system to nearby apartment buildings by volunteer drivers insures that anyone who wants it can have a hot meal. If you are interested in volunteering, speak to our Coordinator of Volunteer Services. For more information please call Becky at 519-823-1291 X 2096 or by email
