The Regina Food Bank received nearly 92-thousand requests for food last year – almost half of those who needed help were children.
With students back at school, everyone is reminded of the importance proper nutrition has on a child’s ability to learn.
On Thursday, the Health Sciences Association of Saskatchewan showed their support for the Regina Food Bank by donating $10,000.
“The Regina Food Bank programs include initiatives that teach and share the many facets of healthy living, growing and preparing food, eating well and staying active,” said HSAS President, Karen Wasylenko. “HSAS Professionals understand the critical role that useful education and true prevention have on an individual’s ability to thrive. Knowledge is Power. There is a natural fit between the goals of the Food
Bank and the work of HSAS Professionals.”
The Regina Food Bank is always in need of volunteers, financial support, and food donations.
At present, there is an immediate need of pasta, peanut butter and canned protein, such as tuna or ham.
