Wheatland County Food Bank has received some funding from the government that has allowed the food bank to move into a new facility and continue to keep the community from going hungry.  

They have been awarded $383,100 as part of the Community Facilities Enhancement Program grant (CEFP) explained Minister of Culture and Status of Women, Ron Orr. 

“Communities are the bedrock upon which this province is built.  Strong communities are critical to having a strong province. That is why we have the Community Facilities Enhancement Program. (CFEP).” 

“The program enables our government to help organizations to create facilities that support their communities. The Wheatland County Food Bank is one such organization. For more than 30 years it helped those in need. The CFEP grant of $383,100 has helped the food bank create a facility that will continue to serve the growing needs of the community for years to come.”
