The Saskatchewan Union of Nurses (SUN) is donating to Food Banks of Saskatchewan to help address hunger this holiday season.

During the week of December 4, SUN announced a donation of $250,000 to Food Banks of Saskatchewan, which operates in 36 locations across the province. The donation will help address the increasing demand food banks are seeing as Saskatchewan residents struggle with food insecurity. 

"We know that hunger is a huge issue," said SUN President Tracy Zambory, RN. "We also know that when people are hungry, they can't function properly, they get sick, and they eventually end up in the healthcare system. This donation is one of the easiest ways we can help our Saskatchewan population be healthy this holiday season."

SUN members who are able and feel so inclined are encouraged to make a donation of healthy, nutritive food, or a monetary donation online
