The Mustard Seed has temporarily stopped some of its services due to safety concerns.

Outreach programs at the Mustard Seed food bank and street church have been temporarily shut down due to safety and staffing concerns. The services include a Friday- and Saturday-night meal service, which fed about 100 people each day, and the weekday drop-in centre, which included access to the clothing bank, wellness room, and coffee and bread services.
