Help feed families in Edmonton


Edmonton FoodDrive

In support of Edmonton's Food Bank

It’s time to help replenish the cupboards at Edmonton’s Food Bank. We believe that families helping families is the quickest way to do that! It's as easy as taking a walk on a Fall day.

The week of the food drive, a few days leading up to the September 28, volunteers deliver bags to homes on their food collection routes.

People living on those routes will be able to donate simply by placing non-perishable food items on their front step. The day of the food drive, volunteers will pick up the food on their routes after 10am and bring to a collection site.

For volunteers, you can now sign up and select your route online.
