Lenten Food Drive
Forty Items in Forty Days
One of the local ministries supported by St Peter & St Paul’s is the Centretown Emergency Food Centre.
The Food Centre operates out of the Centretown United Church on the corner of Bank and Argyle. Clients come monthly to receive a 3-4 day supply of food consisting of a mix of fresh and non-perishable foods and toiletries. The Food Centre is supported by a number of downtown churches through its parent organization, Centretown Churches Social Action Committee (CCSAC), of which St Peter & St Paul’s is a founding member.
As a member parish, we provide prayer support, volunteers, financial support through our Tithe for Missions, and in-kind donations to the Food Centre collected during the year. Food items, toiletries, and containers can be donated using the baskets at the back of church.
Please bring non-perishable food, toiletries, and containers to the church throughout Lent. All items will be blessed and delivered to the Food Centre.
