Food Bank VolunteersSuspended until isolation and distancing restrictions are lifted.
Every Tuesday, St. Anthony's parish acts as a depot for the Edmonton Food Bank, serving the needs of Food Bank clients who live in Edmonton's west end. Food Bank volunteers welcome clients as they arrive to pick up their hampers, and assist whenever necessary. We cannot deliver the food to the clients' homes.
All donations are appreciated. Certain foods are frequently in demand, including:
- beans (with and without pork)
- soup (dry or tinned)
- canned fish or meat
- peanut butter
- macaroni and cheese
- pasta and sauces
- powdered milk
- canned fruits and vegetables
Although donations of food are probably the most tangible way to help the Food Bank, we also appreciate monetary donations, which keep our trucks running, our coolers cool, and our shelves stocked. That is, when the Food Bank runs low on certain items that are essential to the nutritional value of our hampers, we need to purchase those items through our gleaning program. Luckily, through this program, we can use every donated dollar to purchase up to $20 more food!
