On the last Sunday of every month (except in July, August, and December), the Social Service Society provides a hot and delicious lunch for roughly 250 people who need one – 144 people enjoy the meal “family style”, with volunteers serving as hosts at each table while other volunteers run the kitchen, pour the coffee, and clear the dishes. It is an opportunity not only to meet a basic need but to encounter other people while sharing a meal together. In addition, 100 meals are served as takeout for those who could not be accommodated in the hall.
The Social Service Society has been organizing the Last Sunday of the Month Lunch for over 20 years and has seen a steady increase in the number of meals served and the number of take-away meals provided to those who can’t fit in the hall.
The cost of the lunches is covered by the Social Service Society and through the donations of generous inidivuals and organizations. If you would like to make a donation, please contact Adrian King-Edwards. If you would like to volunteer your time, please simply join us on the last Sunday of the month (except December, July, and August) at about 11:45 in the back of the Cathedral where you will be directed to the hall.
