Food Purchases

Each year, Edmonton’s Food Bank purchases between $500,000 and $600,000 worth of food. Between food drives, our food supplies will often run low, and we use monetary donations to ensure our hampers are nutritionally balanced.

For example, during the late spring and early summer, items such as canned meats, fruits, and vegetables run low, and the funds generated by monetary donations are used to purchase these items.
