We hope to bring back some of the cultural aspects of food security within the community.
Currently, the Saugeen Food Bank serves approximately 141 households through our food bank program, many clients within the households consist of elders and children. It is our goal to be able to provide emergency food relief to our members when needed as well as grow and provide fresh produce to all community members through our Garden Program.
This project will not only house the Foodbank and Community Gardens Programs that are currently in place, the larger space can also implement a number of additional services to our membership such as weekly soup kitchens, workshops and community gatherings. Through this project we hope to create a new space within the community where we can teach, learn and gather together thus enhancing our well being and sense of community within Saugeen First Nation.
