Community Outreach

Soupbowl Sunday 

Soupbowl Sunday is a collaborative project between The Comeback Society and The Regina Foodbank. A team gathers on a weekly basis to make and provide our community with a hot meal. They make over 300 meals and distribute them in two locations in Regina - Pepsi Park and Victoria Park.

To get involved in serving at the Pepsi Park location, email the office for the sign up sheet. We meet at the Food Bank at 3:30, load up meals and head to the park for 4:00. We set up tables and serve the community soup, sandwiches, bannock, drinks and warm winter wear, typically finishing before 5:00.

Carmichael Warming Center

An overnight warming center has opened at Carmichael Outreach and will be accessible seven days a week from 11pm to 7am for people who need a safe place to go. Glen Elm has committed to helping with food and drinks for 60 once a month over the winter. Our next date is February 14th and we will need donations of fruit (apples, bananas or oranges) and help making sandwiches during the day on Wednesday, February 14th. Email Kelli at the office if you can help out.

Community Fridges

A Community Fridge is a type of 'free store' that is from the community, for the community. It is 100% community owned, used and maintained. Regina has 3 fridges:

Cathedral Community Fridge - 2104 Garnet Street - in the parking lot of Holy Rosary Cathedral

Regina Community Fridge - 3037 Dewdney Ave - behind the pharmacy on Dewdney & Cameron St

Heritage Community Fridge - 1510 12th Ave - Next to Carmichael Outreach

Food insecurity is a growing problem in our city. Several times a year we collect fridge and pantry items as a church and deliver to the fridges.  Food can be dropped off anytime and there are other ways to get involved including: picking up flash food items or joining the cleaning team (training provided and takes approximately 15 minutes to do). Contact the fridge teams directly through social media or email the office for more info.
