The Yellowknife Food Bank posted on their facebook page over the weekend that they are ‘desperately in need’ of donations to keep up with the needs of the community.

“We gave out all we could (over 100 baskets) this weekend but without more donations, we won’t have enough food for the next distribution on May 25.”
