1,600 Thanksgiving meals for homeless and disadvantaged

Adrienne Urquhart —

On Thanksgiving Monday, October 10, from 12:00 to 2:30 p.m., Good Shepherd Centre (412 Queen Street East) will be serving a festive meal for the needy in our community. The meal is offered free of charge.

Last year, the Centre served 1,608 meals at its Thanksgiving dinner, with the help of more than 50 volunteers who serve the meal ‘restaurant style’.

What does it take to serve 1,600 meals? 

In the past month, Good Shepherd has been raising funds for its meal program (Toronto’s largest) with the #fastturkey challenge. People are asked to skip lunch on October 7 and donate their lunch to help feed the homeless. www.fastturkey.ca
