Life is stressful enough right now without having to worry about what to cook for supper, so we’re grateful there are so many local grocery stores, markets and catering companies offering pre-made meals that you can pick up or have delivered. Most of the options freeze well, too, so you can stock up on a few and rest a little easier knowing you have a wholesome backup if your best intentions to cook don’t quite pan out.

We’re focussing here on “heat-and-eat” types of meals. If you’re also interested in restaurant meals to eat at home, click here.

This list may change as Calgary’s Covid-19 situation changes. We will endeavour to keep it as up-to-date as possible. If you are a grocery store, market or a catering company offering ready-made meals for takeout or delivery, please let us know by emailing SupportLocal@redpointmedia.ca.
