The Salvation Army ran its first week of the newly created Warm Welcome Kitchen.

"We served over 20 on both days," shared Christina Farquhar, organizer of the kitchen, "so there's room to go up."

"The first night we served a macaroni casserole and a garden salad as well as a bun." 

Thursday's meal consisted of mashed potatoes and gravy, meatballs, vegetables and a garden salad. Dessert was served both nights as well.

"We really need to get the word out that it's for everyone in the community. It's only going to get better as more people some."

She adds that it's great for newcomers to come out and meet people and single people who can share a meal with others instead of eating alone.

"We're always looking for volunteers because many hands make light work. If you can come in the afternoon to help cook, that's awesome. If you can't come until 5 o'clock to help serve or help clean up, that's awesome as well."

She added that usually meals are held every Tuesday at The Salvation Army and Thursdays at St. Paul's United Church. However, this upcoming week, Thursday's meal will be served at The Salvation Army as well. The times are 5:30 - 7:00.
