Edmonton's Food Bank - Festive Campaign Launch

Providing a Holiday Hamper, and much, much more!

 

While some individuals and families do access services from the Food Bank, Edmonton’s Food Bank is a central warehouse that distributes food to and works with over 300 agencies, shelters, churches, schools and food depots providing a diverse range of food programs to our community. 

Edmonton’s Food Bank annual festive campaign will run from Monday, November 22 until Friday, January 7, 2022. This year’s goal is 250,000 kilograms of food and $2,000,000 that will help us feed people now and into 2022.

“With the unpredictability of COVID and the rising cost of food, shipping, and fuel prices, we must be prepared to serve our community in 2022,” said Marjorie Bencz, CM, Executive Director. “Edmonton’s Food Bank is currently serving upwards of 28,000 people a month through our hamper programs while working collaboratively with our partner agencies serving thousands of meals and snacks every month. Your support is needed.”

 Monetary donations can be easily made online at edmontonsfoodbank.com/donate. All major grocery stores accept non-perishable food donations for the Food Bank. During the holiday season there are also many wonderful events that support our work. Please visit edmontonsfoodbank.com/events for more details:
