Lethbridge Food Bank Society
The purpose of The Lethbridge Food Bank Society is to provide food to those who need it in a non-judgmental atmosphere while preserving the dignity of our clients. We believe we have an obligation to meet human needs and that access to food is a human right. Acknowledging the disparity in the availability of resources among Canadians and recognizing that while food banks will be needed for the foreseeable future, they are only a temporary response for those living in poverty. We provide monthly food hampers to our clients along with bread and produce on a twice weekly basis. We are working very hard to ensure that the children of Lethbridge don’t go to school hungry by working closely with schools and clubs. In 2016, 7,500 food hampers were given to 16,591 people that need assistance of which 40% were children. More information about the Lethbridge Food Bank can be found at our website at www.lethbridgefoodbank.ca.
Thursday August 4th, 2016
We would like to
promote your business during our 8th Annual Care for Kids Golf
Tournament sponsored by Canadian Tire.
We are excited to invite you to join us at Paradise Canyon on August 4,
2016 for a great day of golf and prizes.
All proceeds from this golf tournament go towards the Lethbridge Food
Bank. Larger sponsorships and golf teams
receive: lunch, golf, carts, tee gifts, prizes, supper and advertising. Best of all you get an afternoon off of work.
There is an opportunity to bid on our live and silent auction items after golf.
With the increase of families each month when purchasing foods we are finding that every
dollar counts. Registered clients can
receive a monthly hamper (1 weeks worth of food) and come in twice a week for
bread and produce that we have on hand.
With over 1600 individuals (40% are children) coming in and over 1700
visits for bread and produce each month you can see we are continually looking
to raise money to help fill our hampers. As of the end of March 2016 statistics
show an increase of 102 more hampers, 684 more individuals and 228 more visits
to our bread /produce room each month over the same period last year. We anticipate this will grow exponentially
with this struggling economy.
Looking forward to
seeing you August 4 at Paradise Canyon Golf and Country Club!
