Holiday Giving

Holiday Meal Sponsorship

Are you looking for an easy way to give on behalf of your friends, family, workplace or cohort this holiday season? Sponsoring a meal is a great way to make a big impact!

Meal Sponsorship Program 

Meal sponsorship has been a Boyle Street holiday tradition since our inception in 1971. Our community kitchen brings staff, clients and our supporters together to develop a healthy, nourished, and connected community. By sponsoring a meal, you can help to feed Edmonton’s most vulnerable and spread the kindness that defines Edmontonians during the holiday season. 

Double Your Impact: Matching Campaign

​There has never been a better time to sponsor a meal for our community! 

 

An  Canadian artist with a special connection to the Drop-In at our Community Centre who wishes to remain anonymous has generously offered to match the first $25,000 donated for Holiday Meal Sponsorships. This means your impact will be doubled when you sponsor a meal this holiday season. 

 

Your meal sponsorship will be matched dollar-for-dollar by our anonymous donor, providing more meals that are warm, tasty and nutritious to all of the clients who access our Community Centre during the cold seasonal months. 

We are beyond grateful to our anonymous donor for giving us this opportunity to expand our meal sponsorship program in size and impact. In a year when we’re all feeling stretched—physically, financially, and emotionally—this opportunity helps us to celebrate what a HUGE positive impact our supporters can make on the lives of the people we serve.

Sponsorship Details

Meal Sponsorship Tiers

We have created three options for Holiday Meal Sponsorship, listed as tiers, with a set price and levels of recognition. Choose the meal sponsorship tier that suits your goals and budget, and indicate your desired tier on the Holiday Meal Sponsorship form below. Each tier will provide a meal for all the clients accessing our Community Centre.

COVID-19 Restrictions

Due to COVID-19, we are unable to welcome volunteers into our Community Centre to prepare meals. However, your sponsorship will still help to feed those experiencing homelessness and poverty amidst the pandemic and the challenges presented by our city’s winter months.
