It’s joining other food banks around the country taking part in the challenge, sharing stories about how their communities are trying to tackle hunger.

The Saskatoon Food Bank and Learning Centre is inviting city residents, groups and businesses to take part in the month long challenge — including donations.

“Raising awareness of the issues affecting our community is the first step. The second step is to take action. We are counting on our community to join us in our efforts against hunger and poverty by accepting the Hunger Action Challenge,” said executive director Laurie O’Connor in a media release.

One company, Canpotex, says it will match all donations to the Food Bank’s Milk for Children program, up to $50,000.

Food security is at the core of what we do, and we are proud to partner with the Food Bank to contribute to the food security of thousands of children here in Saskatoon,” said Ken Seitz, president and CEO of Canpotex.

As well, local brewery 9 Mile Legacy will contribute all proceeds from sales of its Milkshake IPA to the Saskatoon Food Bank and Learning Centre.
