We at the Strathcona Food Bank are very excited about many things: the fact that vaccines are getting to Albertans, the official arrival of Spring on Saturday, March 20th and the launch of our new logo! As we watch the changes around us as the snow melts, buds appear and geese return we also felt a change at the Food Bank was also in order. Stay safe, stay healthy and embrace change!
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 9:00am and noon, except on statutory holidays. All appointments must be booked by phone.
The Strathcona Food Bank is a charitable 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.
In 2020 there were 199 volunteers who donated 21,944 hours at the Strathcona Food Bank.
In 2019 there were 168 volunteers who together worked 22,240 hours at the Strathcona Food Bank. We continue to rely on the amazing volunteers who fill all positions at the Food Bank!
