Good cooking: Donations welcome for Masset Soup Kitchen

Everyone will get fresh Haida Gwaii cranberries when they sit to a table at the Masset Soup Kitchen’s annual Christmas dinner on Sunday, Dec. 3.

“We’ve had some dinners where we’ve had extra cranberries and put them in jars as a prize,” says volunteer Marjorie Fregin.

“It’s just the little things. People really appreciate it.”

Non-perishable food, cash, or Christmas-gift donations are welcome now for the ninth annual Christmas meal, which will be served from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Dec. 3. Fregin said anyone is welcome to volunteer cooking or baking, and to join in.

“It’s open to everybody,” she said.

It takes about two days of cooking to get the dinner ready, Fregin said, as it involves baking dinner buns and Christmas baking, too.

People can make donations or get involved by phoning 250-626-9372. Fregin said everyone who helps out will certainly be on more than one list for Christmas cards.
