In need of baby food - Saskatoon Food Bank & Learning Centre at 202 Ave C S, Saskatoon SK

In need of baby food - Saskatoon Food Bank & Learning Centre at 202 Ave C S, Saskatoon SK

Last week, Lisa Landrie and I joined some of my entrepreneurial coworkers from The Two Twenty to participate in the best follow-up to the shopping frenzy of Black Friday & Cyber Monday...Giving Tuesday. We went around the block to the Saskatoon Food Bank & Learning Centre to help put together food baskets, organize at the clothing depot and wrap presents ( I wrapped...Lisa took all of these amazing pics). Come along with us for a tour.

Everyone knows that the Food Bank provides food to people in need. Did you know that 12,000 people come to the food bank each month? And that 5,160 of those people are children? Neither did we...and we're really hoping you can help with their #1 need which is for baby food and baby formula. All donations are appreciated, as are cash donations. By the way, your donation will be DOUBLED by PotashCorp until Jan 16th.

All food is sorted here. The Food Bank generally follows the Canada Food Guide. They really appreciate healthier options for people with health conditions, dietary restrictions and health-conscious preferences and they provide plenty of fresh produce, too, not pictured.

Ladies like us often donate our clothing to charity...but the Clothing Depot needs more men's and children's clothing. Even accessories such as toques, mittens, scarves, warm socks, etc are much appreciated. And much-coveted are items that make winter fun such as skates, toboggans, hockey sticks and more. Please help us to spread the word.
