Food Bank

The Food Bank helps those who have trouble balancing between winter heat bills and proper nutrition


Christmas may not come again for a whole other year, but the Kindersley and District Food Bank would love to remind everyone that hunger doesn't go on hold at the end of the holidays.

Kindersley has been seeing an increase in the use of the food bank over the last year; Denise Webster, spokesperson of the organization attributes to the heightened demand for comestibles to the lowering oil and gas economy -upon which the majority of the province's economy is dependent.

All sorts of people purportedly visit the food bank -not only the unemployed- and the upcoming year is expected to be one of the district's busiest in a long time.

Webster is expecting to ride some rough storms in March.

Webster claims March is a time when heating bills are at a premium, and it can often be hard to juggle payment priorities and feeding a family.

The food bank thankfully is getting a strong volunteer and donation support team; food is always welcome as are monetary donations to assist in meeting the nutrition and dietary guidelines required.

To help out with the organization as a volunteer or to make a monetary donation, please call 306- 460-7022 to get in touch with the Food Bank.
