Annual poverty supper coming up in Rimbey

The annual Poverty Supper, held at the United Church, consists of a variety of hearty homemade soups and breads.

October is the month of those wonderful fall suppers. Many of the surrounding community halls

treat us to a delicious meal of turkey, ham, salads, vegetables and, if you still have any appetite

left, a selection of pies. Those fall suppers are a great tradition, and are an opportunity for us to

appreciate the abundance of food that we are privileged to have in our country.

Another tradition that is entering its third decade is the annual Poverty Supper, held at the United

Church. It consists of a variety of hearty homemade soups and breads, (there is no charge for

the meal) and is followed by a program regarding different situations in the world where people

are struggling with poverty and/or social issues. Programs over the years have included an

orphanage in Burma, workers in Colombia, Residential Schools and First Nations, orphans in

Africa, child poverty in Alberta, and the Canadian Foodgrains Bank to name a few. Everyone is

welcome October 30. Supper starts at 6 PM.

This year the program is focusing on a local group, the Rimbey and District Wellness

Association.
