WeCook Meals, a Quebec-based ready-to-cook home delivery food company, is offering four weeks of free meals to 300 beneficiary attendants, nurses, and doctors across the province.

By using its app and online platform, WeCook will give more than 7,200 complete meals, that are “ready to eat in two minutes,” states the company’s release.

Étienne Plourde, WeCook’s Founder and CEO says the initiative “is our way of expressing our utmost respect and offering them a big thank-you.”

“I welcome this initiative, which will undoubtedly help many employees in the health-care system eat healthily and quickly at a time when we are all facing extremely busy work weeks,” says Dr. Pascal Laferrière-Langlois, Anesthesiologist at HĂ´tel-Dieu d’Arthabaska in Victoriaville.

Health-care workers wishing to take advantage of the free meal deal are asked to submit proof of employment at the bottom of the WeCook Meals homepage for a coupon so they can place their orders.

WeCook’s deal is available for the first 300 health-care employees who sign up for the offer.

A month’s worth of meals will then periodically be delivered to their choice of location throughout Quebec.

“In the current environment, employees in the health-care sector need to maintain their energy and concentration levels more than ever, which means high-quality food. I heartily congratulate WeCook Meals for providing them with nutritious, complete meals when they need them most,” said Catherine Naulleau, Dietitian and Sports Nutritionist.
