Two new programs at the Regina Food Bank will help residents stretch their dollar and become more educated about the food they’re taking home.
A partnership between the food bank and Conexus Credit Union will provide a financial management program and a nutritional cooking program to clients.
Steve Compton, CEO of the Regina Food Bank says with the rising cost of food, both programs will be a real help to clients.
“If you’re in a low income or fixed income setting, I think it’s important. There’s been a lot of talk lately about the rising cost of food, the lower purchasing value of the dollar and some of the challenges in the economy, so I think it’s more important than ever.”
A $50,000 per year commitment by the Conexus Credit Union will fund the three year initiative.
