We are always looking for food staples throughout the year, and specialty items such as diabetic and gluten free foods.

Starting in November, donations for Christmas hampers are greatly appreciated; such as:

  • Chocolates
  • Pickles
  • Applesauce
  • Mustard
  • Packaged stuffing
  • Potatoes
  • Cranberries

Also, gift donations for teen's and men's items are normally needed.

Please call early December to adopt-a-family at Christmas.  Families are always in need of help at this time.

Building Fund

The Vulcan Regional Food Bank Society is requesting funding which would assist us in renovating at a new location.  We would like to raise $160,000 for the building fund this year.  Our costs of raising the funds will be about $3,500.

The Vulcan Regional Food Bank Society is currently located at 115- 2 Ave North, Vulcan, AB, which is also where we are incorporated in Alberta.

For further information, please call the Executive Director, Carrol Thomson at 403-485-2192.

If you are donating to the building fund, please make cheques out to Vulcan Regional Food Bank Society Building Fund.
