Saskatoon churches pledge fundraising support for inner city grocery store

A group of Saskatoon churches have pledged support to work together to assist in fundraising for the proposed “Good Food Junction,” a full service co-operative supermarket that would operate at Station 20 West, assuming that private funding goals are met and the “cluster of community services” becomes a reality. Pleasant Hill and Riversdale, two of Saskatoon’s poorest neighbourhoods have been without a grocery store for more than a decade. The low-income residents in these communities already face mobility challenges making it difficult to seek services in other areas.

$650,000 is needed to fund equipment for the store and church leaders from a number of Christian denominations have pledged to promote the cause leading up to the Christmas season.
