The Ermineskin Food Bank is committed to providing nutritional support to residents of Neyaskweyahk who are in basic need. We work closely with surrounding programs to ensure non-duplication of services, while promoting accessibility to employment and/or training opportunities that will assist our clients in their journey to self-sufficiency. Clients accessing the Food Bank will receive a 2 day supply of food items in accordance with the number of residents per household, and are required to provide ID and proof of residency. In order to promote client accountability through sound budgeting practices, the Food Bank is not open to clients for 4 days following the issuance of Family Allowance or Social Assistance, and currently abides by the 63 hour bi-weekly business hours as per the Ermineskin Cree Nation policies. Please see our monthly calendar for hamper pick-up schedules and feel free to give us a call for information on eligibility and/or donations.
