The rising cost of food has been hitting the Regina Food Bank hard.
With the Canadian dollar continuing to sink and the low prices of commodities, Saskatchewan residents could see an increase of 4.5 percent this year.
Steve Compton, CEO of the Regina Food Bank says the rise in cost means more clients and less donations.
“It’s definitely going to impact the number of people who come through our doors.”
Compton says cash donations help more than food in times like these, because it enables the food bank to buy fresh foods.
