For more than three decades the Regina Food Bank’s Annual Food Drive has helped put food on the table for those in need.
The 31st drive will be held on Saturday.
“We’re optimistic that this weekend’s event will reload the shelves and it’ll carry us into those cold months of winter because it is a time when our supplies do deplete for sure,” said CEO Steve Compton.
Over the last several weeks, bags have been distributed through the newspaper, although Compton said any bag or box will do. Residents are encouraged to fill those up with non-perishable food items such as canned goods, pasta and peanut butter.
Those donations can be left on doorsteps after 9 a.m. Saturday. Volunteers and community groups will come by and pick them up shortly thereafter.
Donations can also be brought to grocery stores in the city or right to the food bank at 445 Winnipeg St. Cash donations can be made on the food bank’s website.
