The Gilmore Park Community Meal is a FREE meal offered weekly on Thursdays from 5:30-6:30pm from January to November. 

We have operated for more than 17 years, with a break while the church building was shut-down during Covid.  Everyone is welcome at our meal including families with children, seniors, singles and couples.   We have a warm and welcoming environment and an opportunity for you to connect or socialize while eating a nutritious meal.

Doors open at approximately 5:00.   You may sit anywhere in our large activity room, but of course some people have their favourite place.  Coffee and tea and  snacks are available at this time.   Children are welcome to play with the toys we have available at the children’s table while they are here.

Meals are prepared by our one paid chef and several volunteers. When our meal is ready, just after 5:30, our volunteers bring the meal to you.  After you have finished your meal, you are asked to clean off your plates and put remains in the recycling or garbage bin, and place your dirty dishes in the appropriate trays.  We ask you to be polite and respectful to all the volunteers as well as other diners.

Come and eat with us!
