Feed the Hungry

Feed the Hungry is a traditional “Sit down Sunday dinner” which provides a full course nutritional meal to about 500 guests in an atmosphere of dignity and respect. Dinners are held on 48 Sundays of the year from 3:30 pm to 5:30 pm at St. Mary’s Cathedral Hall, 221-18th Ave. S.W. The Cathedral works at one dinner a year in mid-November. We have historically shared our Sunday with the volunteers from Christ Church, Calgary.

Time Commitment

The Cathedral commits to about 30 volunteers for the dinner. Volunteers can choose from different shifts and activities throughout the day from 9:00 am to 6:00 pm. Activities may include food preparation, setting up hall, dessert preparation, hosting, serving, dishwashing and clearing up the hall.

Special Skills

A willingness to work hard with compassion and to interact with the homeless and hungry of our city. People of all ages and abilities are most welcome.
