As a community we celebrate and extend our gratitude to the Salvation Army, who has served the Trenton & area for over 100 years! Due to circumstances beyond their control, the Salvation Army has closed its local operation of the Lunch Programs and Christmas Food Hampers in Trenton & area as of July 31, 2020. This has been huge loss to the Trenton & area community. But thanks to the willingness and support of the At the Crossroads church, located in downtown Trenton, the church family has agreed to undertake the continued programs, providing these two essential services to our community.
The name Catherine’s Kitchen was chosen to honor the late Catherine Booth the wife of the Salvation Army’s founder William Booth. Catherine organized Food for the Million shops where the poor could buy a cheap meal and at Christmas, hundreds of meals were distributed to the needy.
At the Crossroads church, in partnership with St. James Anglican Fellowship, volunteers are currently providing lunch to people in need, every Monday to Wednesday at The Crossroads Church, 24 Dundas St W, Trenton and Thursday & Friday at St James Anglican Fellowship, 15 South Street, Trenton from 11:00 am to 12:30 pm. Families including children are receiving a nutritious meal.
