The Mosaic Company announced Wednesday at the Regina & District Food Bank they will be shelling out 2.5 million dollars to non-profit groups across the province.

Of the 12 selected, four local organizations will be getting a piece of the pie - Moose Jaw's Wakamow Valley Authority, Hunger in Moose Jaw, Riverside Mission and the Moose Jaw & District Foodbank will be getting a portion of the funds.

“From providing access to healthy meals each day, to teaching about how food is grown, to providing cooking lessons, to bringing nutrition to the forefront in school and classrooms, these organizations are supporting Saskatchewan families and helping them thrive,” explained Karen Swager, Mosaic's New Senior Vice President, in a written release. "Moving forward with a multi-year funding commitment helps our community partners build capacity within their organizations. Knowing there is cash in place for these programs and not having to worry about reapplying for grants each year takes some of the pressure off and allows our partners to focus on strengthening communities and supporting families as they move towards food security and self-sufficiency."

The remaining non-profits are the Saskatchewan School Boards Association, five organizations in Regina and two in Saskatoon.

This money will be distributed over the next three years, as Mosaic says they've made a commitment to aid in funding for food education initiatives and food security practices.
