The Warm Welcome Kitchen was created to fill a need in the community when the Warm Welcome Shelter was no longer needed. Like the shelter, the kitchen will be closing it's doors soon for the season. 

"The numbers have been down," shared organizer Christina Farquar. "We're still serving over 30 every night, between 30 and 40. We're not getting up to the 50 mark again."

She added that on Tuesday, even despite the storm, there were still had over 20 people come out. 

"Knowing it was going to be down, I was happy with the turnout. I'd always like more but the people who came out had an awesome meal."

"I know that there's people out there that can use it that aren't coming for whatever reason. It's open to everybody."

Farquar works with a regular team of helpers but adds that volunteers are always welcomed. 

"Especially at the end, people enjoy their supper and come up and help us at the end. You don't need a lot of people for cooking but it's always nice to have help to make clean up go faster. We wash floors and everything at the end of the night." 

"During the day I can set up and in the afternoon, we have a few volunteers that come out but we're always looking for more people."
