The Street Connection is a mobile
soup kitchen that operates in
four low income areas of the Halifax
Regional Municipality of Nova Scotia, Canada.
operates a regular schedule the first three weeks of the month
making stops at the corner of McIntosh St. and the 500 Block of Herring Cove Rd. on Mondays at 7 p.m., McAlpine
Road on Tuesdays at 7 p.m. , Mulgrave Park on Wednesdays at 7 p.m., and
Greystone Drive in Spryfield on Thursdays at 7 p.m. We also deliver bread to
Demetreous Lane in Dartmouth each month. Volunteers on
the bus distribute free food and bread to an average of three hundred men, women, and
children each week. The majority of those coming to the bus are young
children. The Street Connection does not operate during the
months of January and July.
Each week people line up at the side
of the bus where we distribute food from the kitchen area of the bus.
The food includes sandwiches, bagels, bananas, yogurt, hot homemade vegetable soup and
apple juice. We also distribute 1 litre
containers of frozen homemade soup for people to take home.
People line up at the back
of the bus to receive free loaves of fresh bread.
