9-10 Club Information:
The 9-10 Club is a registered non-profit society. It serves breakfast five days each week (Monday - Friday) for the unemployed, the poor and the hungry in the basement of St. Andrew's Cathedral (access off View Street).
The society offered its first breakfast service on Friday, November 12, 1982. At that time, meals were served from 9:00 am to 10:00 am, six days a week (hence the name 9-10 Club). The name has remained the same, although the time schedule is now 8:00 am to 10:00 am to accommodate the increasing numbers.
In 2004, the number of people who came for breakfast averaged 221 people per day. In 2003, it was 181.
Breakfast is a hot, nutritious soup with meat and a variety of vegetables. Guests may have as much as they want. Bread, cracker, jam, cookies, pastries and gallons of tea and coffee are available. Fresh fruit is served most days. For some, this is the main meal for the day. All meals are free. A bagged lunch is available for those with a day job as this may take care of lunch until they are paid.
The 9-10 Club exists because of the concern and generosity of many people and groups.
St. Andrew's Cathedral provides the space, light, heat and water. We are most grateful for this contribution. Financial support for purchasing food, paper supplies, cleaning materials and food serving equipment is dependant upon donations. We are most grateful to those who continue to support the work of the 9-10 Club. Owners of local businesses generously donate food which is passed on to the clients on a daily basis.
