We at Meet the Need want to take a quick moment to thank everyone who helped make the 2013-2014 Winter Clothing Project a big success. With your support, we were able to donate 65 winter coats plus toques, mitts, scarfs and blankets to people in need in the Ottawa area. While we were able to bless many people this past winter, the success of the program has meant that there is not much left in our inventory for next year. Because of this, Meet the Need is announcing the launch of its ‘Spring Cleaning’ Winter Clothing Drive. If you or anyone you know has new or gently used winter clothing items that are taking up closet space, then please consider donating them to the Winter Clothing Project. We are in particular need of women’s winter coats. If you would like to donate, talk to Greg, Jana, Wilson, or Sandie on Sunday mornings at All Nations Church or email Thanks again for your support! - The Meet the Need Team P.S. Meet the Need has some exciting new project opportunities ahead. We’ll keep you all posted as our visioning team hammers out the details, but keep an eye out for new ways in which you can invest directly into the lives of those burdened by challenging circumstances.

A big thank you to our Lunch Project volunteers who took part in our May distribution! In total, twenty-six delicious lunches were handed out to people living on the streets, and the team was able to make some good connections through conversation and prayer. Many individuals opened up to us, and we will continue to pray for each and every one of them to receive God's love and freedom. If serving and investing in the homeless in Ottawa is something that is on your heart, please email Sandie at to volunteer for one of our monthly distributions. The next distribution is Saturday, June 21st. #ottawa #love #homeless #thelunchproject #ancottawa

The Meet the Need team is excited to announce that it will be undertaking a new project called The Lunch Project! WHAT IS THE LUNCH PROJECT? On the last Saturday of the month, a team of volunteers distributes hot lunches to the homeless and those living on the streets in downtown Ottawa. While feeding the hungry is an important pillar of The Lunch Project, we are also looking to connect with the homeless, build rapport with them, pray with them, and let them know that they are seen and loved. We believe God can do great things and that His love can spark breakthrough in the lives of those living on the streets. For more information about the project, visit WE NEED VOLUNTEERS! The Lunch Project is always looking for volunteers for our prep and street teams. Below is a list of our summer distribution dates. You can sign up for one Saturday, or all of them depending on your availability. Whatever help we can get is much appreciated! May 31st - We are most in need of volunteers for this date! June 21st July 26th August 23rd Sept 27th If you would like to volunteer, please email Sandie at with your available dates. Once you have been scheduled, you will be emailed all of the pertinent information closer to the dates of distribution. If you cannot volunteer but want to help support this project financially, visit to find out how. All other questions about The Lunch Project can be directed to the email address above. Thanks everyone! We are looking forward to the season ahead! The MTN Team
