Lethbridge Food Bank
Agency of the Week Profile
Date of Publication: December 7, 2016
Agency Name: Lethbridge Food Bank
For 33 years The Lethbridge Food Bank has been proudly operated in the community of Lethbridge and serving the surrounding area with a “food share” program. Lethbridge is growing, making the Lethbridge Food Bank an important part of a vibrant community to ensure a food security resource for families in need. As a non-profit organization they depend on donations from individuals and business. Their mission is acknowledging the disparity in the availability of resources among Canadians and recognizing that while food banks will be needed for the foreseeable future, they are only a temporary response for those living in poverty and believing in the principles outlined in the mission of the Lethbridge Food Bank Society is to meet the immediate food needs in Lethbridge and the surrounding area, while working toward long term solutions to hunger and poverty.
How The Community Can Help:
For the 10th consecutive year, Lethbridge Food Bank joins forces with the Interfaith Food Bank and the Salvation Army to ensure that the less-fortunate members of our community get everything they need to enjoy a Merry Christmas. Because they share clientele, their organizations work together on The Christmas Hope – Joining Forces for the Holidays campaign. This year they expect to assist as many as 3500 adults and 2000 children. For more information and a wishlist of items visit their joint website at www.ChristmasHope.ca. The Lethbridge Food Bank is looking for outgoing volunteers to assist as Hamper Distribution Helpers. Outgoing volunteers will hand out food hampers to their clients and help put together the hampers according to household size. Food Hamper Helpers will help clients with their food hampers by lifting and carrying them, select and dispose of perishable foods no longer suitable for distribution, select and arrange perishable foods to replace those disposed of and general upkeep of the Client Intake area. For these opportunities contact Mikee at 403-320-1879 or email: email@example.com. They also welcome friendly people to volunteer at the various events they attend and fundraisers they hold. Responsibilities may include, greeting and receiving food donations and sharing information about the Lethbridge Food Bank.
With so many incredible events going on around our community, we wanted to share these events with our site visitors. You can find details on all types of events including concerts, family friendly activities and more – we’ll keep adding as many as we can find.
