11:00 am to 2:00 pm – at the back alley door
…on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.

Please note that we are closed for several days at the beginning of each month, and we are closed for the month of September each year. Thanks!!


Food Donations

We gratefully receive donations for the breakfast snack we offer during our morning drop-in. We try to serve healthy and whole foods. Currently we are looking for:

  • Baking supplies, e.g. bags of granulated sugar (white or brown), margarine or butter, rolled oats
  • Whole milk
  • Orange juice
  • Coffee (not Maxwell House)
  • Fresh fruit
  • Yogurt
  • Butter patties
  • Sugar & cream packets
  • Cheese (preferably real cheese rather than processed slices)
  • Natural Peanut Butter

Due to health regulations, we may not accept some foods.  Before bringing donation, donors may want to call or email us at 780-424-3544 or

Please note that we no longer have a clothing room. Now we are focusing on “warm feet”:  street worthy shoes, light winter boots, winter socks. We are also begging for gloves and toques.
