Hi All,

I've recently moved to Toronto from London, where I used to volunteer for a charity that ran a meal delivery service for people wil HIV- and AIDS-related illnesses. I alternated between being a kitchen assistant and being a shift supervisor. It was an enjoyable and worthwhile thing to do, and was a good way of meeting new people. This last one is especially important to me now that I'm in a new city, so I was looking for something similar in Toronto.

Do any of you 'hounds volunteer anywhere like this? I searched "volunteer" and "soup kitchen" on this board but didn't come up with much. I found a program called Out of the Cold, but that's not til winter, and a scheme where you cook up a tray of casserole and drop it off to be combined with matching trays, but that lacks the social aspect. Lots of them are on weekdays during working hours, which is impossible. Ideally I'd prefer something secular, and something local to the Beach, but could travel along Queen or Danforth.

Thanks for your help! :)
