The Gathering Place, North Bay’s Community Soup Kitchen, provides 14 hundred hot, healthy meals in a warm environment to those in need. We are a non-profit, non-denominational organization that strives to bring hope and healing to North Bay’s hungry. Since opening in 2003, The Gathering Place has served over 700,000 meals to people in need in North Bay. We also operate food rescue, taking in food and giving it out to other charities and food banks. We operate the North Bay Warming Centre which provides emergency overnight accommodation to homeless individuals during the winter months.
On February 23rd we are walking together and invite you to walk with us. It's cold out there but not cold enough to stop us from hitting our goal of $50,000.
