Our aim is to provide healthy, nutritious food to people in times of need, motivated by a desire to be compassionate and caring towards all.
Volunteers are needed for each Friday between 11 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 call us at 306-232-5623
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 11 am 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.
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.
If Friday drop-off doesn’t work, another time can be arranged.

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 955, Rosthern, SK S0K 3R0.
