Each Thursday volunteers pack two breakfasts, two lunches, two dinners and healthy snacks into each backpack with food for the weekend. The backpacks full of food are delivered every Friday to each participating school for the remainder of the school year. Click here for more information.
Food and Friendship
Food and Friendship is a partnership with Lifeline Outreach and MCC in which we serve a nutritious meal to the marginalized and homeless of our community one Sunday each month. The day is generally made up of 3 shifts, and volunteers choose which they want to participate in.
- Noon - 3:00pm Preparation: Be part of cooking a nutritious meal and help them put together bags of groceries for distribution. This takes place at the Lifeline Centre, located at #12 - 26157 Fraser Highway in Aldergrove.
- 3:30 - 5:30pm Meal: Help serve dinner and distribute grocery bags. Spend time interacting with our meal guests - they love to chat! This takes place at the MCC facility on Gladys Avenue in Abbotsford.
- 6:00 - 8:00pm Clean Up: This takes place back at the Lifeline Centre, located at #12 - 26157 Fraser Highway in Aldergrove.

The Warm Zone Ministry at South Abbotsford Church is an Outreach program that allows us an opportunity to show God's love and compassion to street-challenged women in our community through practical provisions. We partner with the Women's Resource Society of the Fraser Valley in caring for these women.
Our ultimate goal is to share the Hope of the Gospel by building meaningful relationships with these women.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, we are continuing to support the Warm Zone with meals on Monday. It is a limited outreach as we are not allowed to serve the women. Currently, they have five women living there and serve our meals to those women and serve out the door to other women in need.
With the restrictions of COVID-19, we are unable to have any volunteers supporting this ministry for preparing or serving meals. We value your prayers for the women who are a part of Warm Zone.

Food is Love
Blessing others with a meal, to show them God's love. Here's how it works...
We need YOUR help in recommending people. Here are a few ideas...People who have had a baby recently, lost a loved one, lost a job, single moms, someone who is coming home from the hospital, or has a loved one in the hospital, or someone who is just having a bad day and needs to be shown a bit of love.
Email us and we will get in touch with you about the details!
