St. Stephen’s participates in a Feeding the Hungry Meal Program on Sunday evenings at St. John’s Anglican Church (One Roof program) in downtown Peterborough.
On several occasions in the winter months, we provide a hot meal for upwards of 80 guests who live primarily in the city core. In the summer we provide a “bag lunch” for these same folks. We are able to interact with our guests, and have enjoyed assistance from people outside our congregation who wish to directly help within our community.
During these Meal Programs, many of out Youth have been helping out. It has been a wonderful, learning experience for them and they have indicated that they wish to continue doing this!
