Food unites us. It breaks down barriers, challenges stereotypes, and makes friends out of strangers.Gathering around a meal bonds us as individuals, as families and as a community.
Our vision is a community where no one goes hungry. Thanks to our friends and supporters, we’ve been succeeding on many fronts. However, we know we can do more. In November 2017, Edmonton’s Food Bank augmented its services with new programming called Beyond Food. This collaboration of local agencies shares a space in our Annex where free services are provided, including counselling, housing support, and job search assistance.
We want to help our clients, and everyone who comes through our doors, to begin a new chapter in their life. The goal of Beyond Food is to help individuals struggling with poverty to become food secure,financially independent and self-supporting, thus helping them write the story of their life they might not think is possible.
With your help, we can continue this programming and support our food-hamper clients and agencies,and together we’ll write a different story. Join us at the 2018 Magical Christmas Music Gala on Tuesday,December 11, at the Edmonton Inn. Enjoy a plated meal, silent auction, and an evening of Magical Christmas music and storytelling by Tom Jackson. Master musician and friend Tom Jackson will perform his famous Huron Carole and share the story of his life—once shocking and desperate, and later, uplifting and inspirational.
Join us in our journey to lift spirits and help us create new stories for those in our community who are facing food insecurity.
With sincere appreciation,
Marjorie Bencz, CM
