SKSS has been invited to compete in the 5th Annual Strive to Win the Drive Food Bank Challenge. It has run successfully for 4 years, bringing in 2000-4500 lbs of food each year!

  • Over half of all the food-insecure households in Canada are working households.
  • Households living in rented accommodation are more likely to be food insecure.
  • One in five children living in the provinces lives in food-insecure households.
