Out of the Cold (OOTC) will run this season at All Saints Kingsway (ASK) on Fridays from November 17, 2023-March 29, 2024. This is the 29th season for OOTC at ASK. Last season we served over 871 meals to guests and had over 165 community volunteers take part. Thank you to all who give to make this program available to those in need.
The kitchen will serve a hot meal from 6-7:30pm. We will also offer t-shirts, socks, and underwear each week. There will be a sign-up sheet to use the laundry/shower facilities on a first come, first serve basis. We will show a movie each week and serve popcorn after dinner, as well as have the Art Table and computer access. We will be giving out TTC tickets (1 per person).
We are not able to offer shelter spaces this year due to the city defunding Dixon Hall’s support of the Out of the Cold program. All programs will finish at 9pm each week.
All are welcome to attend and receive a hot meal each week. Doors open at 6pm.
