The Food Bank is an emergency food service for those who for whatever reason find themselves unable to buy groceries. The process is simple. Phone our office during office hours and our friendly Administrative Assistant will book you an appointment with our Community Service Worker and we will see what we can do to help!
There are children identified by the local schools as at risk for food security during their weekends at home. The TSA Kids Kits provide 15 pounds worth of kids friendly and easy prep food to keep them Fed throughout the weekend. Currently we provide 129 bags for 9 different schools which costs nearly $70,000 a year! But through the generosity of this community, it is getting done!!
If you would like to contribute to this important service to our community, please contact us at the Office at 780-875-9166 and we will be glad to partner with you! Through the provision of finances to purchase the needed food, like fresh fruits and canned meats, or the donation of the items in a Kids Kit, you can help to keep children in our community fed and nourished so they are ready to learn in school on Monday!
Families sometimes get stuck in the system. They want a way out; a way to become independent and self-sufficient. One by one POH will help that to happen.
The Pathway of Hope (POH) is an Integrated Mission approach, providing targeted services to families with a desire to take action to break the cycle of crisis and enable a path out of intergenerational poverty.
