St. Aidan’s and our partner, the Shelbourne Community Kitchen, are dedicated to creating a sense of community for those neighbours who are living in poverty by providing access to nutritious, affordable food and programming in a safe and welcoming place. The Shelbourne Community Kitchen Pantry provides healthy, nutritious food and a small monthly food voucher from Fairway to provide for individual food needs. We can all help by donating items of food each Sunday in Advent. There is a big red grocery cart in the Narthex where you can put your food donations. Donations of money are also welcome. The money will be used to provide a little more generous food voucher in January when things are particularly difficult.
The items currently of most need at the Community Kitchen are:
• Pasta Sauce
• Brown Rice and Cereal
• Canned Meat, fish and vegetables
• Canned lentils, chick peas and mixed beans
• Peanut Butter
• Cucumbers and salad greens
