Sponsor a family with a festive hamper | YEGFoodBank

Posted on December 10, 2013

Edmonton’s Food Bank works hard to ensure we supply nutritionally balanced hampers to clients. Food Bank hampers are intended to support an individual or household for approximately 5 days. Hampers consist of perishable and non-perishable food. The quantities of the various foods are determined by the number of people in the household.

During the Festive Season we augment our hampers so clients have some festive trimmings. We welcome you to sponsor a family by building a festive hamper and delivering it to our warehouse at 11508-120 Street. Hampers may be dropped off Monday through Friday between 8:30am and 4:30pm please let the receptionist know there are fresh items in the hamper to ensure we get the hamper to a family in a timely manner.

Due to food safety requirements, if you pack a hamper with perishable items it must be delivered to our warehouse. Thank you.

If shopping isn’t your thing, or you are unable to deliver a hamper to our warehouse you can sponsor a family or community meal with a monetary donation. Please note: Monetary value represents food items purchased for the hampers by Edmonton’s Food Bank and does not include donated or gleaned food.

In 2012, there were over 53 festive meals, throughout Edmonton that received food support from Edmonton’s Food Bank. These community meals fed over 21,600 individuals. For many, this was the only festive meal they received over the holidays.
