Canadian food banks facing serious challenges

harvest-logo.gifOn December 7 we did a remote broadcast from the Whitehorse Food Bank. It was a chance to meet the people at the facility, to find out how the food bank works, and how people can help.

We also talked about some of the issues facing the food bank in Whitehorse, and that led us to Winnipeg Harvest, one of the busiest food banks in the country.

David Northcott has worked at Winnipeg Harvest for years, and he's been a tireless advocate for food banks in Canada, and their clients.

We decided to speak with David Northcott about the challenges facing food banks in Canada.

And here's a nice story Yukon Energy's Janet Patterson posted on her blog just after she was a guest on our food bank show. Thanks for the shout out Janet!
