Street lunch serves up fellowship

All Saints’ Anglican Church event Dec. 15 for all in need

A warm welcome is being extended to those in need to fill up on food and fun at the fifth annual Festive Street Lunch.

All Saints’ Anglican Church hosts the event Saturday, Dec. 15 from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

“Everyone who is truly in need, young or old or in-between is warmly invited to attend,” said Michael Robinson with the church.

In addition to the turkey dinner, Leif David will again mesmerize with his amazing table magic, while Jim Leonard will perform his own special brand of wizardry on the keyboard. And Santa’s very best elves will be distributing gifts.

“It would be impossible to put on an event like the Festive Street Lunch without sponsors and help from organizations within the community,” said Robinson, “We are so grateful for this year’s sponsors; Bourcet Engineering, Silver Star Mountain Resort, Busy Bee Spray Services and the Power Pioneers. Special thanks go to All Saints’ Anglican Church for the use of its renovated church hall and for the use of its facilities throughout the year.

“High fives are raised to the students and staff of Beairsto School for the creative centre pieces and decorative placemats. Last, but certainly not least, for your willing help not only with the Festive Street Lunch, but throughout the year, hearty thanks are extended to all the Saturday Street Lunch groups; All Saints’ Anglican, Beairsto School, the staff of Epicor Software and their families, HQF, Knox Presbyterian, Church of Jesus Christ of LatterDay Saints, Peace Lutheran, Seventh Day Adventists, Silver Star Management team, St. James’ and Our Lady of the Valley Catholic, and St. John’s Lutheran. May love and joy come to each and every volunteer!”

The Saturday Street Lunch serves an average of 100 free meals every Saturday in the year except for the two that follow the Festive Lunch (this year it will be closed Dec. 22 and 29).

If your group might like to provide and serve two or more meals a year please call All Saints’ Anglican Church at 250-542-3179 or email allsaintsvernon@telus.net for more information.

“Unfortunately, because of our structure, it is difficult for us to use volunteers who are not affiliated with one of our participating groups,” said Robinson. “Finally, if you would like to sponsor Festive Street Lunch 2019 please do get in touch, we would love to have you on board.”
