|Napi owned food bank building in Pincher Creek|
Napi Friendship Association Executive Director Dianna Gray would like to go on record with a clarification related to the Pincher Creek Voice article "Pincher Creek's food bank to trial voucher program".
Gray said "I'm sitting in partnership with amazing community members for food security committee, and we are looking at different strategies to support the food bank, at this time. Napi is very cognizant of the fact that the needs are great and we want to work in collaboration and partnership with as many people and organizations as possible."
Gray said that she understand the costs of running a food bank. "It is an expensive endeavour." If McMan finds a new home she has other ways the space can be used. "We have some other initiatives, and people have come forward that want to run other aboriginal business out of it." If McMan stays the $350 difference between the price of the subsidized rent and the rent recovery, "That money could go into youth programs."
