Hope Street Church

Soup Kitchen

Hope Street Compassionate Ministry Centre (Hope Street CMC) is more commonly known as Hope Street Church. Hope Street CMC is a safe, family friendly place you can visit on a Sunday afternoon and have a hot meal, experience fellowship and participate in a CMC Church Service.

At Hope, we see a large number of single parent families, homeless and chronic homeless individuals, the working poor and the impoverished. People who have tried most avenues to find help but have come up short. Hope Street CMC continues to fill a big hole in our local community to help those who need help.

In 2012 Hope Street CMC has served approximately: 5,025 meals, 35,000 peanut butter sandwiches, thousands of loaves of bread and other food items, 900 Burgers and 650 Hot Dogs during BBQ season and 100 Roast Beef Buns/Week (last 6 months). We have seen countless articles of clothing donated; including warm clothes, mitts, toques and scarves be for the cold winter months. We have seen an attendance by members of the local community that ranges from 80-100 people/week and have seen between 100-125 people/week over the summer BBQ season. We also see 120-150 people for each Christmas Meal.

To all the people you can,
As long as ever you can.”
