Cheese Sandwich Making

Cheese Sandwich Making_Centre 507_2014Under 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 Sunday at 11:30am 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.
