History

Our History

In 1984 a group of concerned citizens began providing food bank services in the basement of the Stony Plain United Church. As demand for the service grew a search for a more permanent home began, and in 1985 the food bank relocated to Spruce Grove home. It was at this time the food bank became known as the East Parkland Food Bank. After several more location changes throughout the years, construction began on a new facility for the Food Bank on Madison Crescent. On July 7, 1997 the Food Bank moved into this new location where it has remained since. In 2000 the East Parkland Food Bank officially changed its name to the Parkland Food Bank.

We are indebted to the perseverance of the Food Bank’s volunteers and executives throughout the years, and their continual dedication to provide food bank services to their community.
