Community Food Share is pleased to offer everyone in our community the opportunity to learn how to cook nutritious, delicious and affordable meals in a fun, relaxed and friendly atmosphere. There is no cost and everyone who is able is encouraged to participate in the meal preparation and, of course, the clean-up!

Through hands-on cooking sessions this is a unique opportunity to learn new food skills, increase awareness of healthy foods and build new friendships by sharing what you have prepared.

In an effort to reduce costs for the church and eliminate the problem of wrong numbers calling the church for taxi service, the board of managers has changed telephone providers. The cost of our previous provider was an average of $150 a month for the telephone only. After review of four local providers, the board of managers selected ACN who can provide phone, voice messaging and WI-FI/internet services for $82.95 + HST per month. This will result in a savings of approximately $600 a year for St. Paul’s!

As an added bonus, with this installation, and when we pay each monthly bill ACN will donate the cost of a meal for a child in our locality! We would like to take this opportunity to thank Sharlene Fawcett, the ACN representative who helped us obtain this service and donated the digital phone to the church. Thank you Sharlene!
