Parkland Society in on province-wide food drive
Friday, April 20, 2018
The Parkland Food Bank Society is focused on nutrition and is asking their donors to Give Healthy.
In partnership with the international hunger-relief organization, Give Healthy, the local food bank will be taking part in a province wide online food drive.
From April 16-30, 20 food banks from across the province will attempt to raise 50,000 pounds or $125,000 worth of healthy food donations.
“Sometimes, eating a nutritious diet is hard. One of the biggest determinants to a healthy diet is income. People living on limited budgets often find there is not much left for food, particularly nutrient rich food choices. Through this, Parkland Food Bank simply reflects the generosity of our community as it receives all of the food and money it takes to operate from the individuals and businesses within the Tri-Region,” explained Sheri Ratsoy, executive director of the Parkland Food Bank Society.
