Jeff Aitken Mission Pastor
As the largest of the 3 food banks in Welland, the Mission serves an average of 700 - 850 individuals each month, including about 325 children under the age of 19.
Grocery allotments distributed through our food bank provide each family with a healthy supply of food once a month, including meat, breads, fresh milk, and fresh produce when available.
Open Arms Mission strives to meet the physical needs of their clients through our food bank but it goes well beyond that. We provide morning coffee and snacks, Saturday lunch, seasonal support for families with children (backpacks in August & boots in November), hygiene bank, and low cost clothing, furniture and household goods through partnership with Redeemed Goods. We also have people in the community who provide free haircuts once a month.
Many people in our community find it hard to meet their basic physical needs. We help meet physical needs so that we can develop lasting relationships with people and see them overcome life-controlling issues and grow in their spiritual journey.
We reach out to all of the clients here at the Mission with the love of God. Our ministry is a simple one of Love and Hope.
For those that would hear, we provide opportunities to accept the Bread of Life. We have an ordained pastor on staff to provide pastoral care. We begin each day with devotions at 9am; join us at the Mission Centre. We take this time to start our day in God's Word and lift up praise and requests in prayer.
If you need a copy of God's Word, come in and talk to the pastor at the Mission Centre. He is available to guide you in your discovery of and relationship with the Lord Jesus.
