Inner City Lunches-Bissell Centre

The Cause

Mount Olivet Lutheran Church is seeking financial assistance in their mission to provide lunch to people of the Inner City on July 3, 2016 and January 1, 2017. For over fifteen years volunteers from Mount Olivet have partnered with the Inner City Pastoral Ministry (ICPM) to provide lunch twice a year at the Bissell Centre in Edmonton.

Who Will it Benefit?

Volunteers from Mount Olivet purchase and prepare the food, and help serve it to the homeless, and/or lower income families of the Inner City. This lunch brings the Inner City community together for nourishment, as well as fellowship. An ICPM sermon (optional to participate in) precedes the lunch to help meet the spiritual needs of this community. Lunch attendees also have access to vital Bissell Centre resources. At certain times throughout the year, this lunch is the only meal that is available on Sundays in the Inner City.
