Offering hospitality to our neighbours while helping to address food insecurity is one of our most important ministries .
St. A's is pleased to offer a light dinner of soup and sandwiches every Thursday, free and open to all. Doors open at 5:30, dinner is served at 6.
St. A's also hosts the Marpole Community Food Hub, where several community organizations are working in collaboration with the Greater Vancouver Food Bank to provide groceries at no cost to our neighbours every Thursday from 10am - 12pm.
Everyone is welcome, and volunteers are also always appreciated!
Special thanks to Safeway and Choices Market for their donations.
Opportunity for Sharing - Little Food Pantry
Established by a group of Marpole Neighbours, the Little Food Pantry located in Midden Park, provides an opportunity for each of us to help support our neighbours. Donations of grab & go foods (like granola bars) and toiletries can be left at the pantry, and anyone in need of these items is invited to take what they need. St. A's is very happy to be able to contribute to this wonderful neighbourhood project!
