With the holidays now over, the Regina Food Bank says it wants to stay in people’s minds when it comes to donations.
Just after Christmas and New Year’s becomes one of the slower times for the Food Bank for donations, which causes a struggle to fill hampers.
Steve Compton, CEO for the Regina Food Bank, says they notice a big change in the rate of donations.
“It’s the time of the year when we seem to see the majority of the supplies dwindle,” Compton said. “January is a more quiet time. And while we may not necessarily top of mind, we’re still serving those 250 households a day. And there is on ongoing need for support.”
People are encouraged to continue to donate throughout the year.
