Responding to Food Insecurity in Regina with an Exciting New Partnership
October 28, 2021 – REGINA, SK. – Carmichael Outreach, a community-based charity organization in Regina, is excited to announce an incredible partnership with SGI. Through a generous donation of $15,000, SGI will be the official sponsor of the Carmichael Outreach Food Security Program for the month of November, 2021.
Though food insecurity has been a longstanding problem in the community, Carmichael Outreach has noticed the need continues to grow since the onset of COVID-19, and even more so since the recent elimination of the Saskatchewan Assistance Program.
“We have been serving close to 300 meals each day and often running out of food in under an hour,” says Executive Director of Carmichael Outreach, Rochelle Berenyi, “we believe that no one should ever have to choose between putting a roof over their heads or food in their bellies. With the growing need for food, we have been struggling to make ends meet and provide enough meals for everyone. This support from SGI will really help us to be able to be there for those who need it.”
SGI believes in giving back to the province with community programs supporting a range of initiatives, one of which being the promotion of cultural diversity.
“SGI is proud to support the Carmichael Outreach Food Security Program and its important work helping to look after people in need in our community,” SGI President and CEO Andrew Cartmell said.
Berenyi believes that partnerships like these are important for helping community organizations to thrive and meet important needs. “As an agency that relies heavily on fundraising and donations in order to keep our doors open, we are so grateful for SGI’s support this month. We always say that no one person, organization, or group can end homelessness alone, but if we all work together, we CAN end poverty and homelessness in our community.”
