Christmas Food Drive for the Calgary, Edmonton, and Lethbridge Food Banks!
Make a difference this holiday season by donating a few non-perishable food items with your bottles, electronics, clothing to the food bank.
'Tis the season to spread joy! As we gear up for festivities, SkipTheDepot is thrilled to introduce our annual Christmas Food Drive in partnership with the Calgary Food Bank, Edmonton’s Food Bank, and Lethbridge Food Bank. We're on a mission to make this holiday season brighter for our communities, and we want you to be a part of the magic!
As the holiday season approaches, it brings the spirit of giving and community solidarity. According to the Food Banks Canada Hunger Count report, Alberta’s food banks experienced a 73% surge in demand from 2019 to 2022, with 44.9% of Canada’s food bank users being Albertans. This initiative provides a straightforward and convenient way to contribute to your local food bank without stepping outside your door.
Your Food Bank’s Wish List:
Your food bank has made a list and checked it twice! Fill a box or bag with non-perishable food items and put it out with your bottles and cans on the day of your pickup to ensure that your food bank gets the items they need.
- Calgary Food Bank: Cereal, canned meat, canned veggies, canned beans, baby formula, and pasta sauce (no jars).
