Come enjoy Edmonton’s largest celebration of multiculturalism this August long weekend (August 3-5) during the Heritage Festival presented by Servus Credit Union. Experience food, entertainment and cultures from around the world gathered in Hawrelak Park, and don’t forget to give any unwanted food tickets to Food Bank volunteers as you leave!

This is our single largest food and fundraiser of the year, so bring a non-perishable food or monetary donation to help those in need. In 2018, 47,560 kilograms of food was collected, $40,602 in unused food tickets were handed in and $51,016.85 in monetary donations were given. Help us fill our shelves for the end of the summer and into the fall!

If you are wondering what to donate check out our list of Most Needed Items.

There is no parking on site and the best way to get to the Festival is ETS Park ‘n’ Ride.

Volunteers are needed to help with this food and fund raising drive! Sign up online or contact our team member, Doug Hunter by emailing giving@edmontonsfoodbank.com.
