We are often told that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but for many people the cupboards are bare. Every Friday, The Salvation Army’s Community & Family Services (CFS) in Edmonton serves breakfast to those who would otherwise go hungry, and this past Friday was a special one as we celebrated Red Shield Month. Mayor Stephen Mandel, Major Ron Millar, Larry Severin from CTV, Kelly Borbridge from 102.3 NOW! Radio and some of our friends from Corus, joined the serving line to dish up a hearty breakfast to over 150 people.

We’d like to thank everyone who helped us on Friday volunteering their time, and to Save-on-Foods for their kind and generous sausage donation – a very special treat!

Being a father of 3 with a stay-at-home wife, I did not know which way to turn.
