7-10 CLUB COVID 19 UPDATE
The Nanaimo 7-10 Club has not missed a day of service since the COVID 19 outbreak began. With the advent of mandated social distancing measures the 7-10 Club quickly adapted from its served sit down meal Soup and or Porridge, Coffee and a Bag Lunch to take out only. Initially a Bag Lunch (SANDWICHES & SNACK) and coffee only, soup was also quickly made available and we continued to serve as many as 200 per day 7:00 to 10:00am Monday thru Friday.
Partnering Saturday breakfast groups and the Saturday dinner group have also adapted to the new measures.
Serving People with Dignity and Respect.
The 7-10 Club’s mission is to feed the hungry and to increase access to food for those in need.
We accomplish this by working in partnership with the community and providing public awareness of poverty through education and advocacy.
VISION: A community that embraces all of its population equally by working collectively to eliminate hunger and contribute to the alleviation of poverty.
The Nanaimo 7-10 Club Society was started in 1985 by a group of 12 people from differing faith backgrounds who came together to feed hungry children in the city. Since then, the 7-10 Club has served more than one million meals, not only to children, but also to anyone in need.
