The local food bank is running low on food.
The food bank, which is operated by the Salvation Army, supports 52 families in our community, including over 200 children.
Roy Bladen, the Ministry Director for the Salvation Army in Thompson, spoke to Arctic Radio News and said that they are looking to the public for help, specifically asking for donations of canned fish and canned corn.
You can drop of non-perishable food donations at the Salvation Army Thrift Store in the Westwood Mall, Safeway, or make arrangements by calling Bladen at 204-307-2193. Monetary donations are also welcomed, as it allows the food bank to purchase food that might not be donated.
