Give Food

Food is the foundation of our work.
It's a tangible way to help others.

Help us be carbon conscious and drop off your food donation directly to our warehouse, at one of our many special events, grocery stores or fire stations.

To maximize our trucking resources, we can not arrange pick ups for small amounts of food (i.e. less than 100 lbs).

If you have a large amount (i.e. over 100 lbs), please contact us to make arrangements and allow a 3-business day window for our trucks to swing out on their routes.

In keeping with COVID-19 social distancing guidelines, we now offer a drive-up service for donations so you don't have to leave your vehicle! Park in our front lot or on the street (angle parking), call our reception desk 780-425-2133, and we will unload your donations for you.

Fire Stations

Note: During the COVID-19 Pandemic, fire stations are closed to the public.

Our Warehouse

Drop off at our main warehouse at 11508-120 Street. Please confirm our hours of operation for an evening or weekend delivery.

  • The food bank is helpful and does everything to ensure our Christmas was a good one. Even providing the turkey. And vegetables. They are awesome!

  • My daughter and I were in desperate need of food this month. The Edmonton Food Bank really saved us. Incredibly friendly people there and even though we were in and out they did not make us feel that way. And fresh vegetables and great canned goods blew our minds!! Amazing people doing amazing work!! Thank you for being there for us and all in need!!
