214 Avenue M South
Saskatoon, Saskatchewan

Welcome to the Saskatoon Food Desert Hike. This event has been planned to bring attention to the difficulties people living in the core of Saskatoon face accessing healthy food without a full service grocery store in the area. Below is the information you need to walk, run or wheel the Hike.

Date: Oct 15, 2011
Start Time: 10:00 arrival and 10:30 Hike begins
Starting Point: St Georges Parish 20th Street and Ave M
Entry Fee: Groceries for core neighbourhood food programs
Length: 5 kms

You will be asked to bring and to carry groceries through Saskatoon’s Food Desert. This will help you understand what many core neighbourhood residents experience in their search for healthy affordable food in the core area of Saskatoon. At the end of the hike you will be able to place your groceries in the CHEP van for distribution to school meal programs.

The Poverty Awareness Week (Oct 15 -22) kick off and chilli lunch will take place in St. George’s Hall following the hike. We hope you will be able to stay!.
