Prairie Post (East Edition) - - OPINION -

Orlando and Vi­vian Sch­midt, along with their mar­ried chil­dren (5 in all), had dreamed for many years of a cross-Canada trip. Ear­lier this week they rode in to Swift Cur­rent from Maple Creek. They con­vened at Christ the Redeemer Catholic Church for some re­fresh­ments and were given a short tour by Kevin Zerr of their grow­ing pro­ject that sup­ports the Food­grains Bank as well as lo­cal food se­cu­rity and nu­tri­tion ini­tia­tives. The Sch­midts are grate­ful for the op­por­tu­nity to meet with sup­port­ers of the Food­grains Bank all across Canada, re­ceiv­ing hos­pi­tal­ity and en­cour­age­ment along the way. Their goal is to raise $60,000 over the 6,000 km route from Vic­to­ria to Halifax. Do­na­tions can be made on­line at https://food­grains­­cling/
