Making a difference in our community

Our Mission at the Wood Buffalo Food Bank is to provide the resources and education necessary to ensure food security for all citizens in the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo.

We rely on your donations and support!

We are completely community funded, and could not operate without food and monetary donations that keep our shelves full and clients fed.

Food donations can be dropped off at any grocery store bin. Thank you for your support!


We couldn’t do what we do without the help of our volunteers!

You are the bulk of our manpower.

We rely on helping hands daily in our warehouse to stock shelves, pack hampers and sort through donations. We also need help with events such as our annual food drives and fundraisers, which would not be possible without extra hands.


Tough times can fall on anyone. Don’t hesitate to reach out today!
