Announcing Our Meals4Mamas Program!

momstown Winnipeg announces the launched a new program called Meals4Mamas. 

Meals4Mamas is one of the benefits of being a momstown Winnipeg member. It provides an opportunity for our members to help one another out when they need it most. Who better to understand the struggles of a new mom then our own members! Meals4Mamas will provide your family meals every other day for two weeks. It is most widely used by our moms who just had babies; however, we will provide meals in the event of a death in the family or major surgery and need the extra assistance.  

Questions running through your head? Hopefully the answer is below:

1. How much time do I need to give the Meals4Mamas coordinator to set up meals?

While the more time, the better, it is understood that things happen and a moment’s notice is all that is given. If you know you’re having a baby, please try to email prior to your delivery so we are aware you’ll be in need of meals. If you are in need of meals for a death or illness in the family, then just let us know as soon as you can and we’ll do our best to get the meals set up right away.

2. If I’m on the Meal Maker list, how often do I have to prepare a meal?

You decide how often you can help. If you can make a meal on one of the requested dates, please do and if not, we will catch you next time.

3. What kind of meal should I prepare?

You will receive information about the family’s preferences and allergies when you volunteer to be a Meal Maker.  Please assemble a complete and balanced meal that is enough for the entire family plus leftovers. Some ideas: Chicken and rice casserole, broccoli, rolls, brownies; chili or soup, bagged salad, bread, cookies; barbeque chicken, green beans, baked potatoes, fruit salad

If you are expecting, please email  We will send you a short questionnaire to fill out and then leave the rest to us!

Looking for Mamas who want to volunteer!

If you are interested in being a Meals4Mama Meal Maker, please email  When a meal request is made, we will contact you with instructions.  

Thank you to all the volunteers who are making this program possible. After all, It Takes a Village to raise a child.
