In collaboration with the OMHM, St-Columba-By-The-Lake Presbyterian Church and Bread Basket, we have held monthly soup luncheons for the residents. In addition to providing the residents with a healthy meal and free frozen goods, the CRC holds information sessions at these lunches in order to keep the connections to resources available.
The goals of the luncheon also include reducing isolation, and encouraging the residents to connect with one another by facilitating a supportive structure.
The residents have the opportunity to speak with the community worker privately after the lunch is over, or they can make an appointment for a return visit, in the case that they are looking for a more confidential space.
