Local caterers support local front line and essential workers


Crystal Sands Catering with the support of Snow Valley Ski Resort is stepping up to provide lunches to support frontline workers in Springwater Township. Their goal is to create and have ‘safe delivery’ of meals for those who continue to work during the COVID-19 pandemic. Residents can show their support and say thank you by making a $15 donation, which will help provide a delicious meal for a frontline or essential worker.

Owned and operated by Peter and Lisa Hanney, Crystal Sands Catering has been operating in Springwater for 30 years.

“We love this community, we love the people in it and we want to do what we can to give back during this challenging time,” says Peter. “When we thought about what we might be able to do to help, we turned to our passion which is preparing delicious meals. The people who are on the frontlines working day in and day out to ensure the safety of everyone in our community, from the firefighters to the caregivers at Sara Vista Long Term Care, to the grocery clerks at Foodland and the volunteers at the Elmvale Food Bank, everyone is pulling together to help out. This is one way that we can all give back and say thank you!”

For anyone that wishes to donate, Peter and Lisa would love for you to include a message of encouragement for frontline workers.
