About Us

Alberta Food Banks is the provincial association of food banks in Alberta with a mission to advance the vital role, capacity and voice of Alberta's food banks through advocacy, educational and networking opportunities and exceptional member services.

The association evaluates and researches programs to benefit all food banks in the province. These programs are initiated and supported to help our members in food and fundraising, and awareness efforts across Alberta.

Alberta Food Banks provides a wealth of resource material and acts as a communications pipeline for its members so that food banks can function efficiently and share ideas. We promote Alberta food banks on the provincial level.

In 2015, there are 63 members of the association in Alberta. There are an estimated 110+ food banks operating in Alberta.

All members of the association automatically benefit from provincial and national initiatives with our partners. If your food bank is interested in membership in the provincial network please visit the Membership page under the Resoures section of our website.



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.
