Healthy food bank donations selected to help dialysis patients in remote First Nations


A unique program based in Thunder Bay, Ont., is using food bank donations to help people with kidney disease in four remote First Nations.

Each month, a dietitian from the regional hospital sorts through the cans and cartons donated to the Regional Food Distribution Association with the goal of creating personalized packages for dialysis patients.

The boxes are then shipped north by the association to patients in remote First Nations, where nutritious food is often priced out of reach for many families.
