Reaching out to disenfranchised and hurting people
'Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.' - Matt. 25:40
Providing Food, clothing and small household items
Unionville Alliance Church is a church that is concerned for York Region’s poor. There are approx. 40 volunteers who make this exciting ministry happen for 100+ families in the Markham/Richmond Hill/Scarborough areas. Many people, who come to the Master’s Pantry, come on the recommendation of a York Region government agency.

Toronto Alliance Church Community Outreach
Five times a year we take a team downtown to Toronto Alliance Church (TAC) to assist Pastors Bill Dyck and Andrew Hubbard prepare and serve dinner to those who are in need. Typically we go the last Saturday of January, March, May, September and November. The congregation signs up to bring sandwiches, chili, to pray for us, or to go. In the past we have also asked for donations, and with that money, we buy TTC tokens. The leadership at TAC gives those tokens to people as they assess the need. We have also taken fresh fruit on occasion.
On arrival, we set up to be ready to serve dinner to the members of Toronto Alliance Church and anyone else who attends the evening that are street involved. Our team from UAC is directly involved by serving the food and drinks to over 100 people. TAC has tables set up, and occasionally an overflow room, that we serve. Some of our team work in the clothing room, non-perishable food room, or as dish washers and busboys. After the meal the TAC staff have a worship time and preach then we clean up, vacuum and set up for the next day’s church service.
