Three Vernon groups providing meals over Easter weekend

Plenty of Easter meals

The COVID pandemic is not going to stop local groups from making sure people are fed this Easter.

Three organizations will be making sure no one goes hungry on one of the biggest Christian events of the year.

North Okanagan Community Chaplaincy, a ministry of First Baptist Church, Saturday Street Lunch in conjunction with the Anglican Church, and Feed the Streets will be providing several meals to anyone in need, starting Good Friday.

Michael Robinson, with the Saturday Street Lunch program, said Easter is a popular time for people to take the initiative and provide food to those in need, which he commends, but he encourages people to support the existing programs so there is not a duplication of services.

On Good Friday, April 2 from 1-2:30 p.m., hamburgers and all the fixings will be served at the Tailgate Street Church, 3302 32nd Ave.

On April 3, the Saturday Street Lunch program will be hosting its Special Easter Meal from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Anglican Church, 3205 27th Street.

On April 4, the Tailgate Church will be serving hearty soup from 1 to 2:30 p.m.

The noon-time meals will wrap up on Easter Monday at the Salvation Army 1-2:30 p.m., where they will be serving bacon and eggs.

From Good Friday through to Easter Monday, Feed the Streets will be offering its mobile dinner service from 6:30-9:30 p.m.

Feed the Streets starts near the Tim Hortons in the Anderson Subdivision and works its way to Polson Park at 8:30 p.m.
