Welcome to The Parkland Food Bank

Our Vision

We are at the heart of our community where no one goes hungry, so families and individuals can feel empowered, supported, and hopeful.

Our Mission

To coordinate the collection and distribution of healthy food to people in need within the Tri-Region area and connect them to additional resources in the community.

1 in 10 Albertan’s live in poverty

Parkland Food Bank tries to bridge the gap when households cannot spend adequate amounts of money on healthy food because they must prioritize a substantial portion of their budget for housing and utility costs. Instead of families coping by:
Skipping Meals
Eating nothing for extended periods of time
Rely on lower quality, lower cost food
Buy less meat, fruits and vegetables,
through community support in 2019 we helped by:
Distributing 17,337 food hampers
Provided food to 45,824 individuals for 3 days
Provided monthly access to dry goods, milk and meat
Provided weekly access to fruit, vegetables, dairy, bread, baby food (supplies)
Provided referrals to other local agencies for further supports
Kept $1.5 million worth of food from landfills by rescuing it from local distributors and grocery stores

Our Organization

The Parkland Food Bank is a registered Canadian charity ( 12851 0484 RR0001), and operates under the supervision of the Executive Director and governance of the Board of Directors.
