Saint Aidan's Operates a food service program that provides meals that can be microwaved by those marginalized people and homeless people that are living in rooming houses, motel rooms and have access to a microwave. These meals are much larger than the usual microwave dinner and are high in nutritional value. Designed with the thought in mind that it may be the only nutritious meal they have had that day, these meals are available throughout the Grey/Bruce region at no cost. WE LOST USE OF THE COMMERCIAL KITCHEN WE WERE USING! Last year we lost the use of the kitchen as our need increased as the program grew. (Last year we distributed 3500 meals) We have been given a space in Chesley at no cost! However, it is just space, and a kitchen needs installing. We have estimated the cost of the kitchen to be around $28000.00. Most labour has been generously donated. Our team is chomping at the bit to get back to work manufacturing and distributing our meals once again! We are standing here, with our hat in hand, asking you to donate to our cause to get our kitchen built! We require the following items: Electrical work, construction material, double oven six-burner commercial Stove, under the counter commercial dishwasher, non-porous countertops, Commercial exhaust hood. If you can help in other ways such as donating material or your skils, please contact Bishop Tom at 519-270-4763. ,

Today we expanded our Partnerships for meal distribution, for those vulnerable people by forming a partnership with the Chesley's First Baptist Church"s Break Bread Meal program as they distribute meals in the Chesley area. Our meals are now distributed by O'Share Owen Sound, Safe n' Sound, Owen Sound, and the Brocton Navigator Health Team for areas such as Kincardin area's.
We are always seeking donations for our various programs, including our frozen meal program and our Genesis Process Recovery Program. Since January Saint Aidan's distributed approximately 5800 frozen meals to people in need in 2020
Our Priest, Bishop Tom, does not receive a stipend; in any form, all funds donated go directly to support our programs. All our projects are self-funded. We did receive emergency funding from the United way of $22,000 to help with the kitchen and supplies.
We are always in need of three-part trays. Which cost us approximately 150 dollars for one hundred and fifty trays. We project a need for 600 trays a month. Based on our return rate of 30% of the meals distributed.
