MGUC volunteers prepare 50 meals at Kerr Street Mission.

Carol Heimbach and Wendy Duff, having recently volunteered to lead the team of volunteers at Maple Grove United Church (MGUC) in providing food for low-income and at-risk families at Kerr Street Mission, got off to a lightning fast start by preparing and providing 50 meals last Thursday at Kerr Street Mission (KSM). 

This program has been in place for some time between KSM and a number of groups including volunteers at MGUC.  Due to covid-19 restrictions a smaller group is currently involved and prepares the meals at KSM’s kitchen and then packs those meals in take out containers to be given out by KSM. 

Carol commented:
‘It was really quite moving to see the lineup of people last night, in the cold, waiting for their meal.’

Should you like to consider assisting this worthy cause financially, or through volunteering please refer to my earlier note about KSM Meals or feel free to contact me at
