Meal Ministry is the biggest Outreach Ministry at St. Michael's Multicultural. Combined, the two Meal Ministry Programs feed 5000 individuals each year.

Our Hot Meal Program was started in 2008. But our Food Bank has a longer history and one of our previous Priests (The Rev. Walter Bayley) served sandwiches to needy people in the past for a much longer time. Most of our current core volunteers have been serving for more than 10 years.
