Hey everyone! We need your help. Many of you know we’ve been hosting a free community dinner at Bloor Lansdowne Christian Fellowship, 1307 Bloor Street West, Toronto, since January. It’s a free, home-cooked meal for anyone in the neighbourhood, many homeless or living in shelters.
This Saturday, May 31st, we’re having a benefit concert from 7PM to 10PM with the duo A Cup of Cold Water. Tickets at the door are $15. All proceeds go to funding the dinner – that is buying the fresh, nutritious food we serve every week. Cost to us each week is about $120 to serve up to fifty hungry guests. The total cost has been covered by the church so far, but we really need your help to continue long term.
The music will be great! Enjoy! And you’ll be helping the homeless. Also there will be CD’s on sale from A Cup of Cold Water, which proceeds will be split to add to the funds raised from tickets. So come on out.
Don’t forget you’re welcome to come any Wednesday to meet our guests, help out if you like and share a meal too!

Every Wednesday night the Bloor Lansdowne Christian Fellowship Church (1307 Bloor St. W) opens its doors to the community to serve a free home-cooked meal to the homeless, lonely and marginalized members of this Toronto community. Volunteers help with everything and make friends and share conversation with the guests – real community development. Make poverty history!

Volunteering with an NGO in the Congo, two volunteers set out on a two year mission to share their expertise and help the people of DRC. Barb and Gerry (BG) were tireless volunteers with us helping the homeless in Toronto. Now ready for a bigger adventure…A great real time view of volunteerism and humanitarianism at work. Each of us can make a difference.
