Strategic Plan 2014-16

You are here

In late 2013, the board of directors of Alberta Food Banks engaged the services of a facilitator to assist in the development of a new strategic plan for the organization. The board spent a weekend reviewing its previous business plans and input from members. Some qeustions the board asked members to provide feedback on were:

  • As stakeholders of the organization what do you expect of Alberta Food Banks? 
  • Where have we been successful over the last 2-3 years?  Where have we been unsuccessful over the last 2-3 years?
  • Is there any information that you think is important that you would like to share with Alberta Food Banks?
  • What is the most important outcome that you would like to see emerge from this strategic planning process?  Why do you think it is important?

As a provincial organization, Alberta Food Banks works to harness the collective strength of all of our members in Alberta. We collaborate with other organizations across the country in conjunction with Food Banks Canada. With all of us working together and sharing ideas we have a much greater chance of success in all of our endeavours.
