Regina Food for Learning Annual General Meeting 2018
Thank you to all those who attended our 2018 AGM at the Core Ritchie Centre in Regina. We had important milestones that included the Share the Warmth Day, where we provided lunches to 885 students in our program (thanks to a grant from Sask Energy), the securing of grants from the City of Regina and the Community Initiatives Fund and the establishing of a Drop & Go account with SARCAN to raise funds through recycling. Our mission of feeding hungry students was made possible with the support of REACH, SaskMilk, Brown Communications, the CRP Culinary Arts Program, Soup Sistas, Graham Construction and many others. There is much work to continue to do in 2018 but with the continuing support of our community partners and our fantastic volunteers we look forward to meeting the challenge.
We were pleased to have Ashley Enion from the Learning & ReEngagment Centre as our guest speaker at this year's AGM. It was fantastic to hear how Regina Food for Learning is helping her students to be able to receive the food they need to stay in school.
We are very excited to be launching our new website! We will be updating and beautifying in the coming days. Keep watching for details.
-Lin Gennutt, General Manager
The new recycling fee added to milk purchases, has created a huge impact on our budget. If you would like to help us out with recouping some of the recycle fees, we have now set up an account with Stop, Drop and Go at SARCAN. You can drop off milk containers, or any other recycling at SARCAN's drop centres. All you need to do is enter our user name: 306-565-8632 (our phone number), and the drop off code: rffl (all small letters). Please note this is a new user name and drop off code. Enter the number of bags you have and the machine will print out the appropriate number of stickers. Put the stickers on your bags and leave them on the conveyer. Very easy. The recycling refund will go directly to Regina Food For Learning. This will make a significant contribution to our ability to continue supplying quality products to our programs. Thank you for your support.
Thank You Volunteers!

Your contribution to RFFL is greatly appreciated. We are always excited about new volunteers and would welcome any assistance you could offer. We are especially in need at Core Ritchie Neighbourhood Centre on Thursdays and Fridays. We are currently recruiting Members to sit on our Board of Directors.
