Much as we would like to believe that everyone in Kimberley has enough to eat, that is not necessarily the case. Just ask any of the directors of Kimberley’s Food Bank — the need is there and it’s growing. Statistics show numbers of those accessing food banks was up across Canada last year. And Kimberley’s Helping Hands Food Bank stats agree.
The congregation of the Kimberley Fellowship Church on Marsden Street is doing its part to help meet that need. Every Saturday throughout the winter, the Church is offering a soup kitchen, manned and funded by volunteers.
Called the Kimberley Fellowship Lunch Counter, the Church is offering a hot meal for families struggling to make ends meet.
A hot lunch will be served up each Saturday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Church. The program will run every Saturday unless otherwise posted.
Volunteers are also willing to provide transportation to those unable to get to the Church. Just call the Church at (250) 427-7316 for pick up.
