    Getting Involved

    Volunteers:

    Volunteers are needed for each Friday between 12 and 3:30 pm.  Duties include sorting and stocking shelves, filling hampers, handing out hampers to clients, serving coffee and snacks, tidying up at closing time.

    Volunteers need to come in a spirit of compassion, hospitality and cooperation.

    In summer there is a need for extra volunteers to become involved in the garden projects.

     To become involved as a volunteer, please contact one of the board members.

    Donations of Food:

    Donations of non-perishable food items and fresh fruits and vegetables are always welcome.  They can be dropped off at the food bank on Fridays between 12 noon and 3 pm, or placed in one of the drop-off bins found in some local grocery stores.

    Churches and schools also do collections of food and provide another way of giving.

    Some of the most needed items are: canned meats and stews, brown beans, canned fruits and vegetables, pasta and pasta sauce, canned soup, crackers, peanut butter, baby food items and disposable diapers. 

    Garden Produce:

    We encourage people with gardens to grow an extra row for the food bank.  We can use potatoes, carrots, onions, beans, peppers and generally anything nutritious from your garden.

     It is advisable but not essential to let us know ahead of time what you wish to donate and how much.  Call the food bank at 306-232-5623 or call 306-223-4417.

    If Friday drop-off doesn’t work, another time can be arranged.

    Donations of Cash:

     The food bank is always in need of donations of cash.  In addition to our operating costs, we are continually purchasing groceries to fill the hampers.  Cheques can be made out to: “Rosthern District Food Bank” and sent to Box 173, Rosthern, SK S0K 3R0.

         During the months of August and September, we are seeking donations of canned soups and crackers. Donations may be dropped off at the Food Bank between noon and 1:00 pm on Fridays, or placed in the bin at Bigway in Rosthern. Some churches in town also have collection bins.

        Thursday, October 5, 9:30 am - Volunteers are needed for our garden harvest! Bring enthusiasm, potato forks, spades, and gloves. Lunch will be provided.

        On October 12, at 6:00 pm, there will be a fund-raising supper and information evening, to talk about renovations and new developments, and raise funds. This supper will be held at St. Odilon Church Hall. To reserve a spot at the supper, please email Linda Rudachyk - lindarudachyk@msn.com


        Renovation of the former Valley News building has been going on this summer. The result will be a much larger space for food storage and distribution, as well as a kitchen, washrooms, offices, and a meeting space, that may be used for community groups and events.
