The Oct. 29th soup kitchen was a very successful event with about 15 volunteers participating. They as always, worked diligently to get all the required tasks completed. We served more than 170 clients. As well, many find this to be a great opportunity to socialize with friends and meet newcomers to the OBS.
The next soup kitchen will be on Feb. 25th, 2018. I’ll will send out requests for volunteers in January.
The meal service at the Shepherds of Good Hope enables us to contribute to the community at large and socialize at the same time. About three times per year a group from the OBS helps prepare and serve lunch at Shepherds while we catch-up with each other.
The Shepherds of Good Hope is located at 233 Murray St. in Lowertown at the corner with King Edward Ave. The shift runs from 8:30 am to 1 pm. We start by cutting veggies and preparing sandwiches. At 11:00 we are served lunch after which we serve the clients and do the clean-up.
