A month-long campaign is underway between the Mosaic Company and the Regina Food Bank.
The campaign’s goal is to fundraise one million meals, with Mosaic planning to match up to 150,000 of them.
According to a release issued by the organizations, the Food Bank saw a 140 per cent increase in first-time users last year compared to 2019.
“In August, the Regina Food Bank served 1,000 more households than the previous August,” the release stated.
The Mosaic Company is expecting the community to rally around the challenge once again.
“Last year, we were inspired by the generosity, creativity and excitement embraced by our community,” said Sarah Fedorchuk, Mosaic’s Vice President of Government and Public Affairs North America.
“Hundreds of businesses, schools, families, and sports teams leaned in … We are proud to help spark a movement with our investment, and I am confident our community will answer the call.”
For over 30 years, October has been Food Drive Month for the Regina Food Bank. Last year was the first time the two organizations participated in the meal challenge — it secured 1.4 million meals for Food Bank users.
