Inuvik has opened a soup kitchen out of the John Wayne Kicktaruk warming center.

The kitchen is open Tuesdays and Thursdays 11:30-1, and volunteers assure that nobody will be turned away.

The project has been discussed for a while, with last Tuesday being the first day of operation. Organizer Terry Peterson says she hopes this will be a success and result in further funding.

I’m hopeful that once we put in another proposal they’ll go forward with it.

Peterson says the kitchen will also be open to provide residents with some refreshments and shelter for the cold.

We’ll be offering a drop in from 2 to 4 on Wednesdays and Fridays. Just to give people a place to go where it’s warm.

The kitchen’s funding was secured through the anti-poverty fund.
