The struggle for some to put food on the table is continuing, and Agriculture Financial Services Corporation is helping to alleviate some of the pressure
It has been a difficult year for many, with job losses and economic hardships. Food banks have played an even greater role this past year in the lives of many people.
Agriculture Financial Services Corporation or A.F.S.C., will be helping out, by starting a month long food drive today with all proceeds going to local food banks.
Donations can be dropped off at the A.F.S.C office at Vinet's Village Mall, Suite 138 4925 - 50th Avenue.
Food banks are seeing increased usage across the country. Nationally, there was a 23% increase in use in the past year, while there was a 32% increase alone in Vegreville.
