Co-Create for Change
Over the past 30 years the Saskatoon Food Bank & Learning Centre has become an integral part of our community and a critical source of nourishment for over 12,000 low-income individuals each month. The Saskatoon Food Bank, along with food banks in general, were established as temporary measure with the long-term goal of eliminating hunger in the community and closing their doors. Over the years food banks have been an invaluable resource for countless families and individuals with nowhere else to turn. Despite their significant good work, the need for their services has not diminished. In fact, the number of people forced to turn to a food bank is growing each year and the ultimate goal of closing the doors is moving farther from reach. We all want to live in a community where food banks are unnecessary. A community where everyone has access to safe, appropriate, nutritious food. How can we progress to that end?
At the Saskatoon Food Bank & Learning Centre we believe it’s time to look at the issue of community food security with a new lens. For the past year we have been exploring new ways of operating that expand our impact beyond redistributing of food and programmatic responses. We believe that by transforming the way our food bank functions we can enhance our contribution to a healthy food system, expand learning opportunities, strengthen social connections and build community wellness.
