COVID-19 Changes

As always, we are open every Tuesday from 1:00 -3:00 PM but our procedures have changed during COVID-19.

Clients will not be allowed into the building during COVID-19. Hampers must be requested in advance – either by phone or through our online form.

Hampers will be packed by our volunteers and you will be given a pick-up time for Tuesday between 1:00 – 3:00 PM and your hamper will be placed outside for you to load into your vehicle.

Visit our “Need A Hamper” page for all the details and to use our online request form.

We also want to keep our volunteers safe so we’ve modified our procedures for them. See more information on our “Lend A Hand” page.

Alberta SPCA has introduced the Help for Animals Programsee more information here.

COVID-19 Safety Concerns

We would like to keep drop-off donations to a minimum.  Our volunteers are awesome & to protect them we want to limit the amount of extra handling & sorting they need to do during the pandemic. The Food Bank places a weekly order with the grocery store to re-stock our inventory.

We will accept drop off food on Tuesdays from 11 am – 12pm.

During COVID-19

We expect to see increased need for the balance of 2020.  These are uncertain times & quite unpredictable but we are in it together.

The Oilfields Food Bank will remain open & ensure our community members do not go hungry.

Cash donations to help us purchase what is needed are very welcome.
