Thanks to all the volunteers who helped serve meals at the BLCF Café on Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve 2014, both happened to fall on a Wednesday. With the help of these and other dedicated volunteers, our Community Dinner has not missed serving meals to the homeless and marginalized since opening day in January 2008.

Volunteer For The Holidays And Help The Homeless Right In The Heart Of Toronto

Volunteers, (individuals or groups), are needed to help at the BLCF Cafe Community Dinner, a weekly dinner that feeds over 150 homeless and marginalized people, every Wednesday Evening. Relying on fundraisers and private donations, BLCF Cafe receives neither government grants nor corporate sponsorship. BLCF Cafe does rely on the dedication of volunteers to serve over 7,500 dinners, annually.
Volunteers serve each guest a wholesome dinner, with dignity and respect. If you are able, why not contribute a couple of hours of your time for a great cause? You will be glad you did, when you see the smiles on the faces of the people we serve.

For more information: Contact Sophie Mickelson at 416-535-9578 see us on facebook under BLCF Cafe: BLCF Cafe Facebook Link or our BLOG: BLCF Cafe BLOG. BLCF Cafe Community Dinner was established in January 2008 by, and is operated under, the auspices of, Bloor Lansdowne Christian Fellowship - BLCF Church: BLCF Church Web Page

Last year Christmas Day and New Year’s Day both came on Wednesday, so we served lunch at the café from 1PM until 3PM. This year Christmas Eve and New Years Eve fall on Wednesday, so we plan to serve luncheon on those days as well.Prior to and after Christmas Eve and New Years Eve, the BLCF Cafe will serve dinner at the usual time of 6-8PM.

We would be happy to have you or your group help as a volunteer at the BLCF Cafe. Our volunteers help at various times of the day between 12PM and 8:30PM and help in all aspects of running the dinner, from food preparation, serving, setting up tables and chairs, and clean up.

To find out how you or your group may help the cause of feeding the homeless and marginalized right in the heart of Toronto, please contact us at BLCF on any Wednesday anytime after 12:00PM and before 5:00PM. Or call and leave a message.

Please use the side door, as we do not open the front doors until after 6PM and we need our volunteers to arrive by 5:30PM to be briefed before we serve dinner. Sophie Mickelson Director/Coordinator BLCF Cafe Community Dinner 416-535-9578
