"A Ghoulishly Good Time for a Franken Awesome Cause!"

Join in on the Halloween fun!


On Halloween instead of candy, join volunteers and go off campus to ask for  non-perishable food items for the  Saskatoon Food Bank & Learning Centre. Last year over  250 volunteers collected and donated 7500 pounds of food! See instructions below on how to join in on the Halloween fun!



Instructions2This is happening right across Canada. Hunger is on the rise in Canada. As of 2012, it was reported that 1.4 million Canadian households experience food insecurity, which amounts to nearly 1 in 8 households. That means that 4 million individuals, including 1.15 million children do not have access to safe, nutritious and affordable food. This is a 15% increase from 2012 when 3.5 million Canadian were food insecure.

This year, Trick or Eat will be launching a national conversation about how to end hunger in Canada.
#trickoreat your selfies throughout the night to raise awareness for hunger in Canada!
A conversation will be facilitated over twitter and at Everyone is encouraged to lend their voice and join in!

Gluten Free Food Baskets

One person really can make a difference. This is the story of Megan, and her vision for a healthier community. Megan took action to help build a gluten-free food basket program at the Saskatoon Food Bank & Learning Centre. Megan writes a blog, where she shares recipes and tips about gluten-free living.  She recently blogged about growing up in a low-income family and how that experience inspired her to take action.

Special thanks to Megan, the Celiac Association of Saskatoon, and Heather Morrison, who has also championed this project.

Hear Megan talk about the project with CBC's Garth Materie.

You can help support this program with gluten-free food donations and funds to help us purchase food.

Rachel and Nicole's Amazing Idea!!

Rachel and her sister Nicole decided Rachel should ask her friends to bring food donations to her birthday party!. Rachel's Mom Barb brought Rachel in to drop off the donations and they both took the time to have a tour and learn more about our work and about the hopes and dreams of our community. Thank you to these wonderful young people for caring about your community. We think you and your family are amazing!!
