Need For Winnipeg's Siloam Mission Doubles

Need For Siloam Doubles

WINNIPEG - Siloam Mission says the number of Winnipeggers coming in food support has almost doubled since last fall and it's putting a strain on the shelter.

CEO Tessa Blaikie Whitecloud says there has also been a decrease in donations so they have added $140,000 to the budget this year just for food.

Siloam is averaging 15,000 meals a day and only has two or three days of food on hand instead of the normal five to seven.

Siloam's overall deficit is currently $750,000.
