Aquaculture company provides barbecue salmon lunches as way to say thanks

Campbell River hospital workers got a barbecue salmon lunch Friday courtesy of Campbell River-based aquaculture company MOWI.

“We are preparing meals today for all the hospital staff and Yucalta (Lodge) as a way to say thank you for all their care and support of our community,” said Dean Dobrinsky, MOWI Canada West’s HR director.

MOWI used their barbecue on a trailer that they usually take to community and charitable events but which is going unused because of the COIVD-19 pandemic. They parked it at the hospital’s loading dock and cooked up salmon meals and delivered them to every floor in the hospital.

“It’s such a great thing to be able to give to these folks,” Dobrinksy said. “It’s been our pleasure to be able to serve them as they’ve been serving us.”
