Yukon food bank working overtime as temperatures plummet

The food bank in Whitehorse, Yukon is in overdrive trying to keep up with the high demand because of frigid temperatures.

At times the temperature drops in the city to -50.

That’s keeping workers at the food bank busy.

And not just with Whitehorse residents.
