Theft of food proves a point for the Central Alberta United Way..


1 minute read

The United Way Central Alberta had an unintended but not surprising consequence to one of its

#UNIGNORABLE Campaign displays. Four art installations have been built to inspire people

to think more deeply about issues like domestic violence, mental illness, homelessness, and hunger.

A table with five school lunchboxes full of food, and one empty lunchbox symbolizing hunger was placed

on display at a local recreation centre (GH Dawe). When organizers went to move the table to

its next venue, all the food was gone. CEO Brett Speight says regardless of whether a group of children

grabbed a snack, or an adult removed some of the food for their family, the message is the same. –

Hunger is an #UNIGNORABLE issue in Central Alberta. He says organizers will make sure to provide

some extra food at the table’s next installation.

Smiles Thru Lindsey reaching out with a new video message and urging Albertans to look out for each other at this challenging time

Published on

The holiday season is well behind us, we’re heading into the coldest part of the winter, and although the days are starting to grow longer there’s still a definite lack of daylight in our lives.  The winter blues are a real thing and this year we have COVID, a whole new serious problem to add to our mental health issues.

COVID is also the reason the Smiles Thru Lindsey team has not been able do public events for many months.  Unable to reach out physically through school visits and fund raisers, Smiles Thru Lindsey is reminding Central Albertans to check in on each other.  Also, please follow the Smiles Thru Lindsey Facebook page .  They’ll lead you to the resources you or your loved ones need right away.

Meet Lindsey and the Smiles Thru Lindsey team in this powerful video.  …And remember to check in on the people in your life.
