Under the oversight of the Mission Team, we have a dedicated group of volunteers who care deeply for those who are hungry. Our action takes the form of making cheese sandwiches once a month. We invite you to join us!
Every third Tuesday of each month at 7:00 pm in the church’s Lower Hall cheese sandwiches are made, people engaged in conversation and friendships deepened. The sandwiches support the Street outreach ministry of Centre 507.
Besides offering food and a friendly face, the sandwiches give the outreach workers the opportunity to invite the recipients to Centre 507 where they will find an “adult drop-in centre that is open to all who seek a safe, friendly and supportive environment.” Serving Ottawa’s disadvantaged since 1983, the centre is at 507 Bank Street near the corner of Argyle. Many Centre 507 participants face a combination of economic and social disadvantages. Homelessness, unstable housing, mental illness, addiction, health concerns, poverty, employment and loneliness are among their challenges. We help our participants address these challenges.
