Farmland Legacies is on the verge of launching a second protein contribution into food hampers across Saskatchewan. In December 2022, we piloted our "Lentils for Lunch" program in 4 different locations, serving 2400 meals. This went well, and so we plan to extend the program further in 2023 with a target of 40,000 servings. Every dollar donated results in 8 servings of lentils - a good dietary source of protein and fibre. By serving it forward, your donation will become an integral part of our work. We all make a difference and the difference is greater when we combine efforts!
Together we can provide nutritious servings of protein to people in need. It doesn't need to cost a lot and the benefits include:
- You will become more aware of the benefit of giving in your own life.
- You will help create a renewable food system.
- The nutritional intake of those who use food banks will be improved.
- Farmland Legacies will either grow that protein or source it from farmers practicing regenerative agriculture.
- The environment benefits from shortening the distance between consumer and producer.
Here's an opportunity to extend hospitality to a neighbour in need. It can cost as little or as much as you wish and literally benefits the world!
May you find joy in serving it forward!
