The Fort Saskatchewan Food Bank is a proud member of the Poverty Awareness Fort Saskatchewan, which started as a group of community minded individuals getting together to talk about the presence of poverty and homeless in Fort Saskatchewan.
Poverty Awareness Fort Saskatchewan is a committee made up of local service providers who work with some of the city’s most vulnerable peoples.
