The Battlefords Empty Stocking Fund was originally started by radio station CJNB in the 1950’s to solicit goods, services and monetary donations for the purpose of distributing food and gift hampers to needy families in the Battlefords during the Christmas season. We continue to carry on this tradition as a non-profit, registered charity devoted to the Christmas campaign and to operating a year-round community food bank under the name Battlefords District Food and Resource Centre.
