About Us

The mission of Edmonton's Food Bank's is to be stewards in the collection of surplus and donated food for the effective distribution, free of charge, to people in need in our community while seeking solutions to the causes of hunger.

Each month, over 22,000 people receive food hampers from Edmonton’s Food Bank. The Food Bank also distributes food for more than 500,000 meals and snacks each month through more than 250 agencies, churches or food depots with which we are affiliated. Approximately 40 percent of clients served are children under 18.

When individuals call the Food Bank looking for assistance, they are asked questions about their situation, such as their name, address, family size, source of income, and what has happened that has left them short of money and food. During this process the individual may be provided with information on other helping agencies or groups, such as low-cost housing, collective kitchens, free meals, free or low-cost household goods or clothing, a food co-op, employment information (resumes, access to a fax machine and phone), Health For Two (pre-natal health connection), emergency shelters and immigrant services.
