Since 1983 the Wood Buffalo Food Bank has been working towards food security for every citizen of the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo. They continue to provide both resources and education needed so that our citizens don't have to go hungry even in the wake of natural disasters and a global pandemic.
The latest natural disaster forced the WBFB to secure a temporary base in Gregoire. Currently they are able to resume their monthly appointment-based system, but still are only able to provide non-perishable items.
These are the most needed items:
Follow them on Facebook for an up-to-date list.
Donations can be dropped off in local grocery store bins, or at either Sentinel Storage locations in Gregoire. The distribution centre in Gregoire CANNOT take these items due to limited space.
Also, they need assistance in packing hampers at their distribution centre.
