NEW GLASGOW, N.S. —

Brenda Kennedy believes everyone should have access to nutritious food.

But that isn’t always easy for people suddenly faced with caring for a loved one in the end stages of life.

That’s why Kennedy has agreed to partner with the Aberdeen Palliative Care Society to offer healthy prepared meals that they can enjoy.

“Everyone is affected by palliative care,” said Kennedy, explaining her reason for offering the discount.

Kennedy has operated her business Our Turn to Cook for about a year and has been making healthy meals that people can take out and enjoy at home. Everything she makes is from scratch and she makes sure that it’s made with top quality ingredients.

Aberdeen Palliative Care Society chair Margaret-Ellen Disney said it’s a wonderful gift that she hopes will be a help to local families during a difficult time.

“Families are under such stress when someone is in palliative care,” Disney said. “Knowing that there is a healthy meal available is just a real load off the caregiver’s mind and person in palliative care.”
