We received a call 2 weeks ago offering us 25 pallets of frozen goods. We were unable to take any of it because we don't have a facility yet. However, the food was directed to The Old Brewery Mission and they were able to make good use of it. We have had this kind of relationship with The Old Brewery Mission for a few years now. This week they called us and offered us two pallets of non-perishables. That is amazing, because we can keep them in our bus. So we went down and picked up 2 pallets of food for our food bank this coming Monday.
Sharing is one of those lessons that you learn in Kindergarten and if you keep practicing, it helps make the world a better place. Thank you to The Old Brewery Mission.

On Rock is without a permanent home but our programs continue. Thanks to the generosity of Westview Bible Church our food bank continues and is growing. It is refreshing to be working in a spacious environment. The gym and kitchen at Westview feel like we are on the open plains compared to the space we had at 5000 St. Charles, as you can see in the picture.
We continue to look for a building. There are a few possibilities that we are considering, but we are not rushing into anything.
Please keep in mind our Poker Tournament on May 10th at Bourbon Street West. All the info is on our website. We have great prizes once again, including Air Canada Tickets, Monster Gym membership prize packages worth $600, Alouettes tickets and more. I hope to see you there.
