Where To Get Christmas Dinner To Go In Calgary

Christmas Dinner To Go

There’s a good chance that Christmas 2020 is going to look quite a bit different than it has in the past for Albertans. With restrictions on social gatherings due to Covid-19, many families are opting for a simplified Christmas meal plan, and for a lot of us, that means getting someone else to do the cooking. If you’ve decided to hang up your apron this year, we’ve rounded up a list of some of our favourite spots in Calgary to pick up Christmas dinner, or even have it delivered. We know that there aren’t a lot of single-home families out there with 10 or more people, but we’re including the larger meal options in case you do (or you love Christmas leftovers!)
