School’s (almost!) out for summer

June 20, 2019

June always flies by, doesn’t it? One day, it’s the May long weekend and suddenly, your kids (or grandkids) are out of school and Canada Day is upon us. We’ll be talking about the Canada Day long weekend on next week’s blog, but don’t let that stop you from preparing early – if you place an order on now, you’ll have everything you need for the holiday weekend! Might we recommend a Farm to City bundle for the cottage or a Steak Bundle for that long weekend BBQ you’re hosting?

Your kids are hungry – again

If you’ve got kids, you know that no matter what age they are, they’re hungry. Like, ALWAYS hungry…especially in the summertime, when they’re off school and hanging around the house more than usual. So, how to feed a bunch of growing children for weeks on end? With a little planning and some help from your friends at VG Meats, of course.

We recommend stocking up your kitchen with Little VGs and our delicious Beef Jerky for a quick, high protein snack. It’s also smart to have easy lunch and dinner options at your fingertips, so grab some burgers, hot dogs and sausages. If your kids are old enough to use the stove or BBQ, summer is a great time to let them explore their cooking skills!

School lunches turn to camp lunches

Just when school ends, camp begins for many families – and so continues the endless cycle of lunch-making. Make summer lunches easy by visiting our in-store deli counter to get all of the cold cuts you need to make a great sandwich. Add some fresh fruit and veggies, a yogurt cup and maybe a granola bar and boom – you’re all set. Remember, we’ve got fresh Ontario produce available in our Stoney Creek location!

Canada Day is just around the corner

We’ll be offering some Canada Day food ideas here next week but in the meantime, don’t forget to place those online orders now so you’re all set for the long weekend. Or, come see us in Simcoe or Stoney Creek – we’d be happy to help you out!
