For the last two years we’ve grown accustomed to events looking ‘a little different’ to keep everyone safe. The next big event is just around the corner, and it’s time to celebrate Easter looking ‘a little different’ once again — but this time it’s a lot more fun!
Instead of organizing a family video call with Auntie, Uncle and their newborn, you get to welcome them for an in-person easter egg hunt! Instead of leaving food on Grandma and Grandpa’s porch to safely include them in the celebrations, you can share a meal in person!
“This year Easter is much more than just a kids holiday. It’s an opportunity for adults to host a backyard get-together with family and friends, safely, possibly for the first time in two years,” says Manju Ajwani from M&M Food Market in Chilliwack.
If you’re a little behind in your party planning, the friendly, knowledgable staff at M&M Food Market are ready to help. Tell them who’s coming and what tools you have on hand to help with preparation, and they’ll recommend convenient, nutritious appetizers, meals and desserts to meet your needs. Have an air fryer and a microwave? Prefer oven and stovetop? Want to please a picky eater? The Ajwanis and their knowledgable staff have tried almost every item in their store, so they can help make shopping easy.
“If a shopper already has a favourite snack in their basket, we can suggest other items that pair well together, and can be cooked at the same time,” Ajwani says.

- Effortless appies and finger foods: Use tongs and toothpicks to increase food safety while enjoying a wide selection of tasty treats. Grab your shopping list of chicken wings, cheese bites, beef and bacon skewers, and mini pizzas, then start working on your invites!
“Everyone has different comfort levels as we return to in-person events, and our staff is happy to help you find the right fit for your gathering, whether you’re hosting or gifting a party pack to someone else,” Ajwani says.
