June 21, 2016- Alberta Food Banks hosted our Annual General Meeting and conference with over 20 food bank members in attendance. The day was prefaced with a dinner at the St.Albert Inn with keynote speaker Len Rhodes.
Staff at Baker Hughes locations in Alberta, Saskatchewan, British Columbia and other locations around Canada held a tremendous food drive to support local food banks and collected an amazing 23,745 lbs of food!
This was their first food drive and they set a goal of 2,000 lbs of food - needless to say the first attempt was a huge success! Thanks to everyone in all the offices that participated.
Want to donate food but don't know what to give? Most food banks have specific items they need regularly. These 'Most Wanted' items vary from one food bank to another, but we have created a list to help you support your local food bank.
