Saugeen First Nation’s Food Bank & Community Garden Programs
Saugeen First Nation’s Food Bank & Community Garden Programs have recently been combined into one program with our main goal being to fill the gap here in Saugeen by providing a much-needed emergency food service to its community members as well as fresh, local produce to help promote food security within the community.
Currently, the Saugeen Food Bank serves approximately 141 households through our food bank program, 55% of which consist of elders and children. A majority of these community members are restricted to a fixed budget resulting in members running out of food before they can afford to buy more. Furthermore, many of our community members have been diagnosed with diabetes and consequently, have dietary restrictions to which they can’t always afford healthier options.
Items most needed for donation include;
Pasta and sauce
Peanut butter & jam
Personal hygiene products
These items can be dropped off at our food bank location 37 mason drive or at the Saugeen Gas Bar.
*Looking for an alternative way to donate? We are always looking for gift cards to various grocery store locations. If you collect points, why not cash them in for a gift card and donate the card*
