COVID-19 Precautions

Info for clients, donors, and volunteers.


Heritage Food Drive

On Saturday, August 1 from 10 am to 4 pm Edmontonians are invited to make a non-perishable food donation during our drive thru Heritage Food Drive at either Southgate Centre or Edmonton's Food Bank's Main Warehouse. For your safety, please remain in your vehicle while driving thru with your donations. Our PPE clad volunteers will unload the donated goods from your vehicles trunk or back. If you can't make it to one of the drive thru sites, non-perishable food donations can also be made at most local grocery stores, or monetary donations can be made online here.


If you are in need of food during this time, please call our Client Services team at 780-425-4190. Because of the closure of some of our community depots, all clients must call in for food services; our online ordering form has been temporarily discontinued.


We have cancelled all large volunteer groups (5+ people) scheduled to come in until further notice. Individual volunteers or small groups (2-4 people) are still welcome to come in and help us meet the need at this time.

Any volunteer who is sick, or has been exposed to someone who is, MUST STAY HOME.


We are still accepting monetary and non-perishable food donations.

You can donate here on our website or by texting FEEDYEG to 20222. These funds will be important for us to buy essential food items and continue operations.

Our most needed food items have not changed at this time. Donations of non-perishable food are still being collected at major grocery stores.

If you have recently, or are currently, running a food drive, please call 780-425-2133 for information.
