NEXT SOUP KITCHEN:

SUNDAY JUNE 21, 2020 8:30 am to 1:00 pm

All are welcome to join us in this fun and rewarding activity!

Many thanks to all who made our March 1st soup kitchen such a great success!!  We all  worked diligently to get  the required tasks completed. We served more than 200 clients.  As well, many found this to be a great opportunity to socialize with friends and meet newcomers to the OBS. 

We have now completed 22 soup kitchen shifts at the Shepherds of Good Hope. It has become a very popular activity and the volunteer list has been filling up quickly over the last few times. Please respond early to ensure a spot; the maximum number we can take is 20. Extra volunteers can always be used for the preparation. However we can only use 18-20 for the serving and cleaning portion of the shift. Extra volunteers can help out doing other activities for the mission such as organizing the food cupboard or helping staff move materials around. They also have the option of going home early. 

This community event welcomes volunteer members and friends who wish to donate their time and food preparation skills. The OBS helps prepare and serve the Sunday lunch time meal to clients at the Shepherds from 8:30 am to 1:00 pm. Please contact Ann Waters socserv2014@ottawabuddhistsociety.com

GENERAL INFORMATION:

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.
