    Every Tuesday students from Booth Memorial and Bishops College schools are invited to a free lunch hosted by The Salvation Army. St. John’s Citadel is located close by to the two schools and hosts lunches organized by The Salvation Army Community and Family Services. On April 29, staff from Target Canada joined regular staff and volunteers to serve lunch to celebrate a $10,000 donation made by Target to support the lunch program.


    This important donation will provide funds to continue the program which has been in place since 2012 and has been feeding an increasing number of students. 150 students from the two schools enjoyed the meal served by the Target Canada staff on April 29, just ahead of Hunger Awareness Week, May 5-9.

    The School Lunch Program offered by Community and Family Services is part of the Salvation Army’s mission to “meet human needs.”
