SIGN's Kamsack Family Resource Centre (KFRC) is undertaking another food security and nutrition program this spring, with funding assistance from Second Harvest and the Emergency Food Security Fund administered by Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada.
There is no food bank in the community, so Nourishing Families provides some of the basic food needs for prenatal mothers, families with infants and young children and those who have an emergency situation. The funding received will allow the program to operate from early March to late June 2022.
This program provides healthy basic food items once a week to families who have registered and been approved, and those who have been referred by various social service and community agencies in Kamsack.
Any family in Kamsack and area with children aged 10 and under will be considered. The program can accommodate 15 families. Registration is being accepted until March 10. Fill in the form below, or call or message the staff at KFRC (see contact information below).
Once approved to receive food, family members can pick it up at KFRC at the Crowstand Centre on Thursday afternoons.
Updates about Nourishing Families will be posted on Facebook at www.facebook.com/KamsackFamilyResource.
The Emergency Food Security Fund, administered by Agriculture and Agri-food Canada, provides funding to Canadian food banks and other national food rescue organizations to help improve access to food for people experiencing food insecurity.
The government worked with Food Banks Canada, Second Harvest, Community Food Centres Canada, Breakfast Club of Canada, Salvation Army and others to distribute funding to regional agencies.
This is the second year Kamsack Family Resource Centre has been approved for funding.
More information about Second Harvest can be found at www.secondharvest.ca.
If you wish to apply, fill out the form below. The number of families who will be accepted is limited, so we cannot promise that everyone who applies will be in the program.
