Give a meal to a neighbour in need for $6

Every meal makes a difference, 365 days a year. Your $6 donation will help make a meal for someone in need. We serve hot, nutritious meals for vulnerable people and we need your help to make meals happen. Thank-you for supporting the Friendship Inn with your donation to our 2023 Fill the Plate Campaign.

Every day, 365 days a year, guests rely on the Friendship Inn to eat. We provide a Free Meal Service, offering hot, nutritious breakfasts and lunches for vulnerable people from Saskatoon's core neighborhoods and beyond who may otherwise go hungry. As of Fall 2023, the Inn is serving up to 1600 meals per day.

Guests of the Friendship Inn describe hunger as "living in chaos", so serving with compassion, offering dignity and reserving judgment are core principles. Many guests struggle with complex health barriers which frequently include poverty; underemployment; mental health and addiction challenges; domestic violence; long-term disability; homelessness or lack of safe, affordable housing; underdeveloped literacy skills or intergenerational trauma. For many guests, the warm welcome they receive from staff and volunteers at the Inn may be the only kindness they receive in a day. We feel strongly about creating a compassionate sense of belonging, and through our services we hope to help guests feel like an important part of the community and a person who has someone who cares.

Without proper nutrition, people living in poverty experience high levels of illness, stress, and other emergent issues in their daily lives. By responding with two nutritious meals, 365 days of the year, the Friendship Inn empowers individuals and families to focus on the many challenges they may face.
