Ryan Lindsay wants to help after frozen meat was stolen from local food bank

Alberta country singer Ryan Lindsay is helping put on a “flash fundraiser” for the Red Deer Food Bank following the recent theft of frozen meat from its storage sea can.

The award-winning artist is partnering with the Red Deer Food Bank Society to put together a revenue-generating auction before Thanksgiving.

The “live” online auction will be an opportunity to place a bid to get Lindsay to play at your own house concert.

The native of Fort McMurray, who has performed at the Calgary Stampede, is a nominee for a Canadian Country Music Association award for his most recent album, The Ride. He has also won Country Music Alberta awards for album of the year and male artist of the year.

Lindsay hopes to use his music to pull together relief for the Red Deer Food Bank during this particularly poignant time of year: “Thanksgiving is a time of real need for people, and the food bank supports our community in a big way,” Lindsay said about his auction.

“This is a way we can respond and show our support back to them for everything that they do.”

Meanwhile, Red Deer RCMP is still investigating the theft last weekend of meat and dairy products from a storage sea can belonging to the Red Deer Food Bank.
