This World Food Day we welcome volunteers from Cargill who come equipped with 60 - 10kg bags of oats from Horizon Milling to donate. This will provide enough for about 1500 people!
We've gotten used to seeing Cargill lugging compost through the Garden Patch , our urban agriculture initiative, as a team and major sponsor for the past two years and we look forward to having their help in our warehouse and clothing depot today.
At the Saskatoon Food Bank and Learning Centre we have a vision of a food secure community where all people have access to safe, affordable, and nutritious food.
Oats are great for so many reasons and it's no wonder clients really appreciate receiving it in their food baskets. Oats are slow to digest which means you feel full for longer also making it a diabetes friendly food. It can be used to bulk up dishes, blended and used for flour and combined with fruit to increase calories and subsequently energy.
