COMMUNITY SUPPERS: New Season Starts Sunday

By Joe Barkovich, Scribbler-at-large

WELLAND – The Harvest Kitchen community supper program for 2015-16 has its start on Sunday, Nov. 1.

The season’s first meal is being served at Central United Church, 12 Young St., starting at 5 p.m.

Central United will host meals on Sundays and on Tuesdays, the latter commencing Tuesday, Nov. 3. For other venues and dates, see graphic below. Community suppers are served five of seven evenings per week.

Harvest Kitchen in Welland had its start about 20 years ago as Out of the Cold. Back then, the program also offered overnight accommodation if needed.

It has been under the capable leadership of Rev. Bob Bond since its beginning.

Harvest Kitchen is an important partner in the social safety net that exists in the local community to assist people in need.

Venues have changed over the years, but need for the program in Welland has not. Participating churches and other groups have provided yeoman service to the community by opening their doors from fall to spring year after year.

The Harvest Kitchen schedule for 2015-16 has been released. The new season begins Nov. 1 and continues to next spring.
