Free Community Meals
Our hopes for running a Community Meal is to encourage and strengthen friendships, share kindness and inspire hope in the Pender Harbour community by the simple act of sharing a meal together as neighbours. This is a FREE meal open to everyone in the community. Please come join us! If you need more information, directions, or have any questions please email Kent at firstname.lastname@example.org, Thank you!
When: The first Wednesday night of each month beginning at 6pm.
Where: At our church building, in the basement. Christ the Redeemer Anglican Church near the PetroCan.
Who can come: Families, singles, retired people and anyone who would like to connect with others can come. There is no income testing, no expectations of the participants to come to Church, no sermons during the meal just a prayer of thanks before the meal.
What do we serve: Full meals including a main meal, salad and dessert. We will try and have alternatives for people with allergies, but cannot always provide this.
Family Friendly: We have a no alcohol and no drug policy to make this a family friendly environment. Our kitchen staff have "food safe" accreditation and we will practice safe food handling procedures.
