An Easter dinner tradition

Kelowna's Gospel Mission will again open its doors for a free Easter dinner for anyone in need in the community.

Dinner will be served in the Mission's dining room on Saturday from noon to 6 p.m.

"Everyone will be able to enjoy a traditional Easter meal of ham, turkey, mashed potatoes, vegetables, and all the fixings, followed by pie generously donated by the Bernard Avenue Safeway," the Mission said in a news release.

"I am constantly encouraged by the generosity of our donors," said Gospel Mission executive director Randy Benson.

"As well as providing the Easter meals, they write notes of encouragement on placemats that will brighten up the tables. I love seeing the impact of Easter played out daily in the lives of those we serve. What better way is there to celebrate the resurrection of Christ than to share his love with others?"

Numerous politicians, community leaders and other volunteers will be on hand to help prepare, and serve meals.

The Gospel Mission has been hosting their annual Easter dinner for more than 30 years. Up to 900 people are expected to be fed.
