"The Edmonton Food Drive will stock Edmonton’s Food Bank for fall and winter"
On Saturday, September 25, 2021 between 10:00 am and 1:00 pm, volunteers from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints will be collecting non-perishable food donations for Edmonton’s Food Bank.
This year, clear Alberta Food Drive bags are being delivered to single-family homes in many areas of the city. Multi-family homes such as apartments or townhouses will not be receiving notices for accessibility reasons.
“The Edmonton Food Drive will stock Edmonton’s Food Bank for fall and winter,” says Marjorie Bencz, CM, Executive Director with Edmonton’s Food Bank. “Our goal is to remain open and serving our community providing food to our agency partners while at the same time, helping individuals and families. We appreciate the efforts of the Latter-day Saints community in serving our neighbours in need.”
If you received a bag and wish to donate, please leave your donation on your doorstep by 10:00 AM on Saturday, September 25 where it will be visible for volunteers to pick up. If your house did not receive a bag, and you wish to help, food donations can be made at all major grocery stores throughout Edmonton.
Monetary donations can be made securely through the Edmonton’s Food Bank website edmontonsfoodbank.com/donate. Monetary donations are not to be given to as Edmonton’s Food Bank does not collect money through door to door campaigns.
