Alberta Food Banks celebrated a new partnership with western Canadian retailer, London Drugs, today. “We couldn’t be more thankful for this partnership with London Drugs,” said Stephanie Rigby, Executive Director of Alberta Food Banks. “In the first four months of our partnership, London Drugs has donated more than 40,000 pounds of non-perishable food items to food banks in Alberta where stores are located."
Alberta Food Banks is proud to partner with Peak of the Market and its two largest member food banks, Calgary Interfaith Food Bank and Edmonton's Food Bank, to help bring fresh produce to food banks around the province. Midway through the 3-month program, 7 food banks in Alberta have already received more than 8,500 pounds of fresh vegetables as part of this new program.
You can donate to the Alberta Food Banks Rural Food Bank Assistance Fund. This fund is available to rural member food banks to assist with various needs. Food banks complete an application and submit it to the Alberta Food Banks office. Each application is reviewed by the Alberta Food Banks board of directors.
