Community organizations in Medicine Hat are coming together to help out the Medicine Hat and District Food Bank.

Earlier this week, Executive Director Celina Symmonds told our radio station,  the demand was extremely high right now.

Medicine Hat Elks #412 has donated $500 and issued a challenge to other non-profit groups to match the donation.

The Medicine Hat Fire Fighters Charity Fund stepped up to the plate and donated $2500.

More information on donating to the Food bank can be found on the group’s website.
