Help our new Bowls and Blessings Coordinator, Emma

For a second winter, we are serving soup from noon until 1 pm. We normally aim for two days a week. From December 1 to 24, we hope to serve every day! Bowls and Blessings– a mission to serve homemade soup outside that has inspired a community of warmth and generousity. Special thanks to Rawle who delivers bread and treats donated by Paris Bakery, and to neighbours and friends who donate clothing, face masks and more.

Welcome Emma, our new Bowls and Blessings coordinator!

Hiya! My name is Emma. I’m a small town British girl, newbie to the big city. I lived in Bordeaux France previously. I’m a mother, a wife, a writer, and an advocate for pancreatic cancer and endometriosis. My life motto is to make a difference wherever I can and also to create positivity spanning out around me.

This summer on my usual daily walk, music blaring from my headphones, a skip in my step and in a world of my own, the revealing of the pantry outside the church sparked my interest. I thought this was a great idea for the community and proves to be so. I signed up to help with a park clean-up, which was very successful. Then I signed up to help with “Bowls and Blessings” and again I see the positive impact this has on our community. I love being able to help, chat and connect with those in our community. I have met so many lovely souls through the church. I love that there is such an amazing sense of community. I found somewhere I belong.

Please pop by between 12 and 1pm for our delicious soup, or just for a chat. Interested in volunteering? Please contact me at volunteer@martinluther.ca or the church directly for more information. Hours volunteered can count towards community service hours for those in high school.

The Food Pantry in front of the church continues to be open for the community. There are also plans for a little library.
