Message from the General Manager

 

Regina Food For Learning is very proud of everything we have accomplished in the past year. We are looking forward to the new year and all that it has in store for us. I must first acknowledge the commitment and organization exhibited by Linda Brown, our Food Service Coordinator. Linda has been a loyal and hard working employee for the past three years and after much deliberation has decided to hang up her apron and move to full time retirement. We want to thank Linda for her service and wish her every happiness in the next chapter of her life. 

To replace Linda, we have hired Erica Nimmo as our new Food Service Coordinator. Erica is highly qualified and we feel she will be a great asset to the RFFL team. We have also hired a new part time cook at Core Ritchie, Rochelle Gedak, who we feel will also bring a wealth of experience to our organization. Welcome to both of our new staff, and special thanks to Dorothy Payne, our cook at Glen Elm, for her continued hard work and dedication to RFFL. 

During the past year we have formed wonderful partnerships, hosted a Share The Warmth Day in November, hosted a Founders Event, raised awareness and funds, but most importantly we fed hungry children. Thank you to everyone who makes this possible, from the corporate and private sponsors to the volunteers who so generously give their time and talent. You are all appreciated. Wishing everyone a Happy and Prosperous Year in 2018. 

 

-Lin Gennutt, General Manager

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.
