Leftover food is given to Salvation Army
Thousands of meals have been cooked during the B.C. Winter Games in Fort St. John. The B.C. Games have partnered with the NOURISH program to package unserved leftover food from the games into single-serve meals. Those meals are then used by the Fort St. John Salvation Army.
Indigenous Cultural Space open today
The Indigenous Cultural Space at Centennial Park is open today from 10am – 2pm. There are traditional paintings inside and outside which depict the Dane-zaa Dreamers who could bring back songs. The paintings show a variety of animals, people and nature. Doig Councillor Garry Oker said that when he’s painting he lets the creative energy flow through him often not having a plan for what the final piece will look like. Garry said it is awesome to see the kids come inside with looks of awe on their faces.
