Cooking Class & Food Pantry 

“For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me.”

-Matthew 25:35

Food Banks Canada says

“Thirteen percent of Canadians live in a state of food insecurity, which means they do not have reliable access to adequate amounts of safe, good-quality, nutritious food.”

 

One of our 17-year-old kids came to us in tears because a parent had lost their job, they had such little food in the house the teenager had been skipping meals in order to make sure the younger kids had food.  Thanks to a network of community members donating food, we were able to bring over 8 boxes of food to completely fill up their pantry again.  The family was able to turn their focus from survival to moving forward and finding a new job.

 

It's easy to think these things don't happen in small safe towns like Arborg. But they do! Money issues and food insecurity does not discriminate. 

 

We want to not only be a fix in tight situations with our foodbank but also be a resource on how to cook good healthy meals on a budget as a long term solution. Which is why we also have cooking classes for our kids! Click here to learn more!
