Cedar Sky Foods Supports Celiac Veterans’ Independence

Veteran's Independence Program Celiac Disease 2

Cedar Sky Foods is pleased to announce that they are an approved service provider under the Veteran’s Independence Program.  The Veterans Independence Program (VIP) helps veterans remain independent and self-sufficient in their home and your community. Depending on individual circumstances and health needs, recipients may qualify for financial assistance to obtain support in such areas as grounds maintenance; housekeeping; personal care; access to nutrition; health and support services provided by a health professional.

How to apply for the Veteran’s Independence Program.

Cedar Sky Foods is able to offer direct billing to Veterans Affairs Canada so that eligible veterans can use their service without having to pay out of pocket. It does need to be a meal delivery service nor do the meals have to be gluten-free, but they fit both criteria!  Perfect for any eligible veteran in Cedar Sky Foods delivery area (Qualicum Beach to Nanaimo), celiac or not!
