THANK YOU SO MUCH to members of the Turner Valley Line Dancers for their donation of $250.   Simply knowing that people gather together and then look for ways to help their community is incredible. It certainly gives all of the volunteers at the Oilfields Food Bank a real lift.  

We are so grateful for your kindness.

We’d Like to Thank Our Anonymous Donors

How do you thank someone who doesn’t want to be thanked, namely our anonymous donors?  We want to give credit where credit is due so THANK YOU for having our back.  We appreciate your support. It means the world to all of us who volunteer at Oilfields Food Bank. 

We couldn’t do it without you, whoever you are, wherever you are we offer our sincere gratitude.


Foothills Kinettes Donates $4500 to OFB

The Foothills Kinettes held a gala, Gin & Gems, in March and donated the proceeds to 3 area food banks, Okotoks Food Bank, Salvation Army (High River) and our Oilfields Food Bank.  

We recently received a cheque for $4500 from this group of dedicated gals.   We are humbled to have been chosen to benefit from all of their hard work.

high country hockey association

We are sending out a huge THANKS to the High Country Minor Hockey Association who hosted an Alumni game and donated all of the proceeds…$1897.97…to the food bank.  It’s not just a monetary boost, it lifts up the spirits of our volunteers & our community.

RJ Sigurdson Presents Cheque to Oilfields Food Bank

Oilfields Food Bank was presented with a cheque for almost $50,000 from RJ Sigurdson. 

The funding is from a pair of provincial grants, the Food Security Grant and Donation Matching Grant.  The number of people needing help with food and the continuing rise in the cost of food has been a challenge. 

This will help replenish the food pantry so we can continue to meet the needs of everyone who comes through the door. We are very grateful.
