Travel F&B specialist Paradies Lagardère and Regina International Airport in Saskatchewan, Canada, have announced a new initiative designed to help fight hunger in the city.
The program enables travelers, as well as airline and airport employees, to purchase and donate convenience foods, healthy snacks, beverages and other items, which will then be distributed to the Regina Food Bank.
The Regina Food Bank is a community-based organization working to eliminate hunger and food insecurity through nutritious food distribution, education and support programs in partnership and cooperation with local people. It receives close to 90,000 requests for services annually.
Paradies Lagardère has already initiated similar programs across Canada, at the Edmonton International Airport and Leduc and District Food Bank; Calgary International Airport and Airdrie Food Bank; Saskatoon International Airport and Saskatoon Food Bank & Learning Centre; and Winnipeg James Armstrong Richardson International Airport and Winnipeg Harvest.
