OUR COVID-19 RESPONSE IN OUR COMMUNITY

Since 1930, ATCO Blue Flame Kitchen has been here sharing recipes and advice with you. Our original aim was helping homemakers get the best results when using natural gas. Back then, it was an exciting and new fuel to most Albertans. We taught them how to use new appliances powered by natural gas and offered recipes best suited for this “wonder fuel.”

Today, during the COVID-19 pandemic, we are sharing our meals with isolated seniors. ATCO Blue Flame Kitchen is proud to work with the Calgary Seniors’ Resource Society to provide meals to isolated seniors in Calgary. Physical distancing has left many seniors feeling particularly isolated and alone. That’s why our talented and caring culinary team has committed to provide 5,000 nutritious and delicious meals to seniors who have been financially impacted by COVID-19 and live alone, with a caregiver or in a seniors’ complex in Calgary.

“Without a doubt, this is a highlight of their days during this difficult time,” says Lori Paine, Executive Director of the Calgary Seniors’ Resource Society. “Seeing a friendly face, getting a delicious meal and a colorful piece of artwork with a special message from ATCO families is like having a birthday or thanksgiving every day!  It’s a beautiful gesture.”
