soupsonSoup’s On Again!

Were Starting up again on Valentines Day, February 14/2017!!
I hope to see some new faces this year!

Soup’s On is a Greater Blackville Resource Centre (GBRC) project that offers Free Meals and community spirit throughout the greater Blackville area. Various organizations and churches in the area take part by hosting a free community luncheon.

“We are seeing 60 – 100 people in our community taking part in the “Soups On Again” program each week,” says GBRC Founder & President, Rev. Albertine LeBlanc. “Soup’s On has proven to be a very positive experience for the people of our community. It has encouraged many of our seniors and shut-ins to come out to enjoy a meal and socialize.”

The lunches are free, however donations are accepted at the door to help support the program. This program is made possible with the assistance from: Dr. Tiffany Keenan, Community Inclusion Network, Community volunteers, churches, and the Blackville School Culinary Arts Class.

GBRC wishes to thank all of the church groups and service groups for their partnership, and thank you to all of the volunteers who have worked diligently on a minimal budget serving anywhere from 60-100 people a week.

The free luncheons are open to ANYONE and EVERYONE to come and have a meal and socialize. Anyone wishing to volunteer to cook, serve, or organize, please contact one of the hosting organizations listed above, or Rev. LeBlanc at 843-9034.
