St. James Cathedral Drop-In

St. James Cathedral Drop-In

St. James Cathedral is in the heart of downtown Toronto where an abundance of marginalized people gather. The drop-in serves up to 250 guests on most Tuesdays throughout the month.

Our drop-in's services inlcude proving a hearty meal in a beautiful bright space, hair cuts, food box program, bible study and foot clinic/nurses. There is a piano, and guests are encouraged to play during the first half of the drop-in. A volunteer, who is a composer, plays for the guests during the second half of the drop-in.

The staff of the drop-in believe that their space is unque in the sense that it allows guests to feel deserving of dining in the best space which is a human right across the board and not just for the elite.
