The holiday season can be a tough time for community food banks as they strive to serve those in their communities.

The Millet Fresh Market and the Pipestone Flyer have partnered to host a community contest, which aims to help provide support to the Wetaskiwin and Millet Food Banks, as well as provide a $200 Christmas dinner from the Millet Fresh Market to the winner of the contest.

To enter the contest take a food bank donation to one of the contest’s drop off locations: Super Bee Truck Accessories at 4812 49th Avenue in Wetaskiwin or the Pipestone Flyer news office at 5020 50th Street.

With the donation entrants will be given a ballot to enter themselves or nominate a family for the gift certificate.

The deadline to enter is Dec. 13 at 12 p.m. Anyone seeking more information is encouraged to contact Christina Komives at the Pipestone Flyer, 780-387-5797.

The winner will be required to pick up their gift certificate at the Pipestone Flyer office, and pose for a photo that will run in the newspaper and online.
