Home cooking at the shelter

After warmth, there is nothing more comforting than the aroma of food cooking during these cold winter months.  Walking down the shelter steps can be daunting, but when there are cookies baking or chickens stewing in the ovens, the space is transformed.  The lack of natural light becomes less noticeable, the worn tiles and carpet less withered.  The space becomes a place where people gather, not a place people are relegated to.

Consider organizing a group to serve a meal at the men’s or women’s shelter.  It’s an experience you won’t forget – an opportunity to share your resources and your goodwill, and to make some new friends.
