Saskatoon Friendship Innwww.friendshipinn.ca
Without proper nutrition, people living in poverty experience high levels of illness and stress. Hunger negatively affects every aspect of daily life in ways that are difficult to understand by those who have not experienced this challenge. By responding with two nutritious meals, 365 days of the year, the Friendship Inn empowers individuals and families to focus on other emergent issues such as securing housing, finding employment, and creating healthy relationships. Serving up to 1000 meals each day, 365 days a year - with no questions asked - allows us to create a responsive, compassionate and belonging environment for our guests. Along with our free meal service, guests can visit our on-site Social Worker, and take advantage of a variety of health clinics, parenting and other recreational programs. The Friendship Inn is open to the public from 8:00 am to 2:00 pm, everyday. Breakfast is served at 8:00 am to 9:00 am and lunch is served from 11:45 am to 1:15 pm. All meals are offered free of charge, with no questions asked.
FoodRenew helps to reduce food waste in the City of Saskatoon by working with local food businesses of all shapes and sizes to renew their food that would otherwise be thrown away. The rescued food is picked up by FoodRenew volunteers and delivered to one of the many community groups and organizations in the city who can put it to great use. On top of FoodRenew's main focus of saving food from going to waste, we also work to share information about the food waste issue and spark positive change in how we treat excess food from an individual and community-wide perspective.
