Community Outreach YEG has been serving meals since the inception. Meals are generously prepared by volunteers as well as donated by professional Catering Companies and Restaurants.
Over 1000 bag lunches consisting of Sandwiches, fruit, snacks, and a cup of soup, have been made and distributed by our volunteers. Many times, it will be chili and buns, thanksgiving dinner, pizza, etc. pending our donations, we even purchase McDonald’s cheeseburger’s twice a year as well for a treat, but the most requested and loved is grilled cheese sandwiches cooked fresh of the griddle on the sidewalk.
Three separate catering companies have donated prepared meals, some leftovers from events they covered, and with the grace of the clients donated leftovers to Community Outreach YEG to set up tables downtown and feed those less fortunate.
Community Outreach YEG puts on two very large BBQs per year where Vertex Resources lends us a very large wheeled BBQ and Red Robin Restaurant donates all the fixings for us to prepare and distribute hamburgers. Typically, we will see almost 1100 people attend on these nights to eat.
