Father's Pantry serves up hundreds of Easter meals

More than 240 hot meals and 160 sandwiches were handed out during The Father’s Pantry’s Easter Meal in the Park on Good Friday.

The event, which is normally held at Princess Park, was pushed inside the Youth for Christ building on Rosser Avenue due to unpredictable weather.

Organizers say many of those who took advantage of the goodwill were primarily children, teens and seniors — they say one child was around two years old.

The meal was provided at no charge to people in Brandon with minimal income and the event was in conjunction with the Loaves and Fishes Program which is held every Saturday from 11 a.m.-1 p.m., throughout the year and provides groceries and fresh produces to families on the weekend when the soup kitchen is closed.

The Father’s Pantry Inc. is a Christian-based organization of volunteers with no paid staff that relies on donations and sponsorships from companies, local businesses, churches and individuals.

Any extra food from the event was shared with Samaritan House, Helping Hands, Loaves and Fishes Program, the Friendship Centre, Bethel Christian Assembly and other organizations.
