Volunteers from CUPE Locals 2268, 3730 and 8443, along with members of the CUPE Saskatchewan Executive Board, delivered pizza lunches this Friday to children and people of all ages at six parks in Saskatoon’s core neighbourhoods.
The pizza lunch day, sponsored by CUPE Saskatchewan, is part of a larger coordinated effort by the Saskatoon and District Labour Council’s Summer Snack Program dedicated to relieving hunger and providing support to those in our community who might otherwise go hungry with free lunch, seven days a week, during July and August. The program is funded in large part by donations made by unions, as well contributions from local businesses, community-minded organizations such as the United Way, and the City of Saskatoon.
Thank you to all those CUPE members who delivered smiles and joy to many in our community today.
