Episode 6: The End of Charitable Food

“I want you churches,” the city councillor declared, “to put us on notice that you’re not going to offer charitable food anymore.”

For many in the room, this challenge was a shock to the system. But for those of us rethinking the food ministries at Vancouver’s Christ Church Cathedral, it added much-needed fuel to the fire. This was the kind of change we were seeking to bring about, we didn’t yet know how to get there.

In this episode, Andrew Stephens-Rennie reflects on the process of transformation that started to lead the Cathedral’s food ministries beyond charity towards justice.
