Community Café a Collaborative to Feed City’s Homeless

Bell Tower Community CaféA new urban food bank is about to launch in the city’s Wolseley/West Broadway neighbourhoods, connecting those in need of food assistance with those willing to lend a hand.

The Bell Tower Community Café is a bi-weekly food bank run out of the second floor concert hall of Westminster Church.

The café will serve its first clients on Friday, November 22 at 6:30 p.m. and is a partnership between community residents, Winnipeg businesses, local musicians, non-profits, Winnipeg Harvest and the church.

“My vision for the Bell Tower Community Café is threefold — to welcome, create, and share. We welcome each other and create a unique experience of food, coffee and music we share together,” said coordinator Meaghan Pauls. “Serving one another can be incredibly transformative.”

The food bank/café experience will include wholesome food, fresh coffee, and live music. Some people will take home a food hamper, while others will show up to serve. Sometimes the roles even intertwine themselves.
