Volunteers serve lunch Sunday in Boitanio Park

Around 28 people enjoyed a warm lunch during the drizzling weather Sunday

Volunteers with the Society of St. Vincent de Paul served lunch consisting of chicken tortellini soup, sandwiches, hot chocolate and baked goods Sunday at Boitanio Park in Williams Lake.

Organized by Sacred Heart Catholic Church, the lunch is served every Sunday throughout the year at the park.

A total of 28 people enjoyed Sunday’s lunch, with many taking leftovers home.

It was drizzling and 5C so the hot soup and hot chocolate were much appreciated.

Each week one person makes a large pot of soup for the lunch and after Sunday mass, a core group of people make the sandwiches with bread donations coming from local grocery stores and Taylor Made Cakes.

St. Vincent de Paul also has a food bank which opens its doors Mondays at the Sacred Hearth church basement, except for holidays.
