The Church on Five (10200 No. 5 Rd.) is continuing its Wednesday night community dinners via take-out amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Food For Life program brings together volunteer servers and those in need of a hot, nutritious meal.
“We are endeavouring to care for a vulnerable population of hungry people in Richmond, as we have done for the past 10 years,” says coordinator Wayne Masing. “We have made significant adjustments to our regular program to follow the protocols of social distancing, including providing food for take-out and having our regular volunteers stay home.”
But the program hasn’t closed—as organizers recognize the importance of continuing to serving meals to those in need.
“Especially with the closure of other food programs in the city, we want to maintain safe and consistent care for those who are food insecure while abiding by the governmental mandates,” says Masing.
The Church on Five is also holding prayer sessions via video conferencing platform Zoom, as well as live streaming its Sunday services.
