The executive director of Samaritan House Ministries in Brandon has received national recognition for her work for food banks.

Marla Somersall is one of 33 recipients from across the country who will receive a Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal from Food Banks Canada.

These individuals were chosen because of the significant impact they have made in the food banking community.

These medals are bestowed in recognition of the Queen’s 60th anniversary of her accession to the throne.

"We are extremely pleased to have this opportunity to recognize and honour the heart and soul of the food bank community," says Robin Garret, chair of the Food Banks Canada board of directors.

"These are truly distinguished men and women and they deserve to be recognized by their peers."

The individuals recognized by Food Banks Canada were nominated by the public and are from every region in the country.

"The individuals selected for the Diamond Jubilee award are outstanding leaders in their communities," says Wanda Drodge, member council representative at Food Banks Canada.

"They have gone truly above and beyond the call of duty and have given back to their communities by helping thousands of Canadians in need."
