Through the distribution of a healthy variety of foods and goods, and ever more diverse strategies designed to enhance the lives of Fort Saskatchewan residents in times of need, we serve to strengthen the foundations and futures of families and the community at large, and to vanquish not just the sharp pangs of an empty stomach, but the stigma associated with the asking for, and acceptance of much needed help.
