Innovation Place Tenants Give Back During 2018 Food Bank Challenge

Did you know…last year, 233,964 families in Saskatoon and 91,550 in Regina received assistance from the Food Bank?

Fighting food insecurity in our communities requires the support and generosity of many, and from November 13 – 28, Innovation Place tenants in Saskatoon and Regina participated in The Food Bank Challenge – Fighting for Hunger.

In addition to knowing that every food item would help a family in need, there was an added incentive: the company that donated the most food in relation to their number of employees would win a pizza party!

In Saskatoon, six companies in the park took part and collected a total of 916 nonperishable food items. Regina’s park-wide total was 1,376 items!

Congratulations to Saskatoon’s winning company, Arcadis, and to Regina’s winning company, Mera Group!

Thank you to all of the companies that participated this year, we look forward to next year!
