CUPE Saskatchewan delivers pizza lunch with Saskatoon’s Summer Snack Program

Volunteers from CUPE Saskatchewan delivered pizza lunches today to children and people of all ages at eight parks in Saskatoon’s core neighbourhoods.

The pizza lunch day, sponsored by CUPE Saskatchewan, is part of 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 a free healthy lunch, seven days a week, during July and August. The long-running 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!

CUPE volunteers included members of the CUPE Saskatchewan Executive Board, education support workers of Saskatoon including CUPE 2268 and 8443, CUPE 1975 – workers at the U of S, and CUPE staff.
