We want to acknowledge the many, many donors whose generosity has continued to make it possible for the Strathcona Food Bank to serve the community. To our clients we sincerely hope that we have been able to provide some relief during these unprecedented times.
Due to concerns associated with the coronavirus and the desire to keep its spread in check, measures have been introduced at the Food Bank to ensure the health and safety of both our clients and volunteers.
We will continue to be open Monday to Friday between 9:00 am and noon, except on statutory holidays. All appointments must be booked by phone.
The Strathcona Food Bank is a charitable not-for-profit organization operated by volunteers and a volunteer Board of Directors. We rely on donations to provide food assistance to those in need in Sherwood Park and rural Strathcona County. For financial donations of $25 or more we can issue a charitable tax receipt on request. We can also issue a tax receipt for donated items if a receipt is provided showing the cost of the items and the cost is $25 or greater.
