Our dinner guests celebrate a deliciously happy Easter

Guests began lining up at The Good Shepherd Centre on Mary Street early on Saturday, April 15. It was a warm and sunny Saturday – a wonderful time to enjoy Easter Dinner with friends and family. Guests dined on ham, scalloped potatoes, salad, vegetables and dessert. Good Shepherd’s volunteers and staff served 450 Easter meals.

“Hunger is a daily reality for one in five Hamiltonians living in poverty,” says Brother Nick Foran, Good Shepherd’s manager of shelter services. “People from across Hamilton who live in poverty often can’t enjoy the traditions of the holidays. This event brings people together to celebrate Easter and enjoy a hot meal in a welcoming environment that affirms their dignity.”
