On one of the coldest nights of the year in Edmonton, more than 250 people attended The Salvation Army’s inaugural Winter Feast in February. This event was hosted by the Centre of Hope to bring the community together. All were welcome to come out of the cold, enjoy a roast beef meal and listen to performances by local musicians Paula Kirman and Chubby Cree, an Indigenous drumming group.

The Winter Feast was presented in collaboration with Edmonton’s TransEd Valley Line LRT, which not only sponsored the dinner at a cost of $1,500, but also provided 15 volunteers for the event. TransEd Valley Line LRT is currently working on an expansion to the current LRT line, which will include a station near the Centre of Hope building.
“This new event was well received and continues The Salvation Army’s work to build community in the inner city of Edmonton,” says Major Al Hoeft, divisional secretary for public relations and development and area commander, Alberta and Northern Territories Division.
Along with the meal, guests received a “personal needs” backpack as a special gift for attending the feast.
