Message from the General Manager

We are very excited to announce that we have received a grant from SaskEnergy in the amount of $2500 to use for a one time project to bring awareness to child hunger in Regina.  We are currently planning a "Share the Warmth" day on November 22.  It is our hope to provide a hot lunch of chili and biscuits to every one of 935 students that we currently serve.  SaskMilk has generously donated $500 to purchase milk for the students for the event and the Culinary Arts Class at Campus Regina Public has offered to prepare, package and freeze the chili.  The Quality of Life Program at Sask Abilities have offered support by baking some of the biscuits and help with deliveries.  We have rallied much support and excitement for this projct and are hoping this will bring much needed attention to the very real problem of child hunger in our city.  Thank you so much to all of partners in making this a reality.

SARCAN RECYCLING

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!                                               

Thank you very much to the volunteers that have become a part of our program.  The dedication and commitment shown by this special group of people is remarkable.  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 of a couple of volunteers to help out with snack preparation at Glen Elm School and Core Ritchie Nieghbourhood Centre.  We are currently recruiting Members to sit on our Board of Directors.   Thanks to everyone that helped out with the June and September hot dog sales.  If you are willing and able to give of your time and energy, please contact the General Manager either through the comments section of this web site, email: rffl@accesscomm.ca , www.facebook.com/reginafoodforlearning, Twitter: @RFFLyqr or call 306-565-8632.
