The Saskatoon Food Bank & Learning Centre receives no core funding. We rely on the generosity of our community to operate. You can help by making a donation of
food or funds.
Organizing a food drive is a great way to make a difference in our community while building teamwork, leadership and empathy.
Whether you're a businesses, school, service group, church or individuals, hosting a food drive is an excellent way to to build morale.
If you would like more information on hosting a food drive please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
We appreciate all food donations but we are most in need of nutritious non-perishable food items. Our most wanted items are:
whole grain pastas and cereals
