Martensville Food Pantry Offers Hamper Delivery Program

by Jocelyn Ottenbreit

The Martensville Food Pantry is a staple for numerous local families that rely on the program for food hampers and free food options located in the hallway of the Martensville Civic Centre.

They are now offering a hamper delivery program within Martensville for Seniors and those with a Mobility/Disability Impairment who are in need of a hamper but unable to pick up. This delivery program will be a trial service.

“We are leaving the duration open ended at this time. We aren’t sure if there is a need for something like this, but if there is and if it’s not abused and we have the volunteers, we would continue,” said Linda Ward of the Martensville Food Pantry.

The Martensville Food Pantry delivers 15-20 hampers a week to those in need in our community and surrounding area, and are always in need of cereal, peanut butter and honey, canned fruit and vegetables, juice, rice, packaged potatoes, items for kids’ school lunches, drink boxes, granola bars (peanut free) and fruit cups.

This year the Food Pantry is going to provide Christmas Supper Hampers similar to what they did last year where they provided an amazing Christmas meal to families thanks to donations from the businesses in Martensville and the community. They are hoping that soon their charitable status for donation receipts will be finalized by the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA).

They will be looking for fresh items at this time, and monetary donations are also welcome. Watch for more information on this in the coming weeks.

If you or anyone you know of would benefit from a hamper, please contact 306-280-1255 Tuesdays before 6:30 pm to request a hamper for delivery day on Wednesday.
