St. Anthony's Parish Volunteer Food Bank Ministry
Food Bank -- CLOSED
St. Anthony's Food Bank Depot is CLOSED. We are sorry to announce that we have received a directive from His Eminence Metropolitan Yurij that all activities at St. Anthony's have to cease until further notice due to COVID 19. Please contact the Food Bank directly if you need assistance, 780.425.2133.
Every Tuesday, St. Anthony's parish acts as a depot for the Edmonton Food Bank, serving the needs of Food Bank clients who live in Edmonton's west end. Food Bank volunteers welcome clients as they arrive to pick up their hampers, and assist whenever necessary. We cannot deliver the food to the clients' homes.
All donations are appreciated. Certain foods are frequently in demand, including:
- beans (with and without pork)
- soup (dry or tinned)
- canned fish or meat
- peanut butter
- macaroni and cheese
- pasta and sauces
- powdered milk
- canned fruits and vegetables
Although donations of food are probably the most tangible way to help the Food Bank, we also appreciate monetary donations, which keep our trucks running, our coolers cool, and our shelves stocked. That is, when the Food Bank runs low on certain items that are essential to the nutritional value of our hampers, we need to purchase those items through are gleaning program. Luckily, through this program, we can use every donated dollar to purchase up to $20 more food!
