Making Bannock for people in need
With the support of her family and donations from people throughout the territory, Charlene Waugh spends every Thursday making bannock to drop off at Blood Ties Four Directions for the Whitehorse Outreach Van. Her “Bannock bags” include pieces of bannock, cookies, and any other goodies she can add in and still stay within her budget.
When she started, she was paying for all of the Bannock out of pocket, but since January 2022 all of her supplies are funded by generous people donating money and ingredients.
She says: “When I was a teen, I didn’t have a home. I know what it’s like to be hungry, where I was like, ‘can somebody please give me a piece of frickin’ bannock.’ That would have made me happy.”
