Food and Clothing Bank

 

CLOSED for the month of August. We will re-open on Wednesday, September 6th.

Operating most weeks on Wednesdays from 10:00 to 11:00 AM, we are glad to serve our community by providing both food and clothing. Our doors open at 9:30 AM at which time you will recieve a "now serving" number and be asked to wait in an area where there are coffee, tea and snacks. Please only take one number per household.

If you are wanting a food bank hamper from the Edmonton Food Bank, then you must BOOK A HAMPER WITH THE EDMONTON FOOD BANK. We are only a depot for the Edmonton Food Bank and do not do the order processing. Due to the large volume of requests for hampers, we would encourage you to place your order with them by Friday of the week before in order to have a hamper at our site. The easiest way to order a hamper is by going to http://www.edmontonsfoodbank.com/ and clicking on the "Hungry" icon. If you want to call them, please do so at (780) 425-4190 but expect the line to be very busy as it is the only number for all of Edmonton. You can only receive a hamper once every 30 days.

We have a free BREAD, VEGGIE & GROCERY BASKET that is available weekly. We try our best to serve everyone fairly and will restrict the amount of each type of item so that everyone gets an equal amount. Please be aware the food items may be past their "best before" date. Different foods have different shelf lives. Please CHECK ALL FOODS for their expiry date and their condition BEFORE CONSUMPTION. It is your responsibility to know what you are eating. If you come for a Food Bank Hamper, you may wait for eveyone who is only coming for the Food Basket to have their turn and then access it as well.

We also have a CLOTHING BANK that is avilable next to the waiting area in the basement auditorium. There are two rooms - one for children and the other for older people. If you want to contribute to our Clothing Bank, please do so on either Tuesday or Wednesday morning, as that is when people will be around to receive it.
