Stuff-A-Bus

The November 28, in-person food collection event has been cancelled due to COVID-19 transmission concerns, but that doesn't mean we don't need your donations

We know that 2020 has been tough on many people in our community. The demand on all food banks in our region has definitely increased, and the community's capacity to give has in many cases, been reduced. Stuff-A-Bus is Strathcona Food Bank's largest food collection opportunity of the year, and all donations made in our community stay in our community. While we won't be at Save-On-Foods for you to fill up a bus, Strathcona Food Bank bins will continue to be at all Save-On-Food locations within Sherwood Park ready and waiting for your donation. If it's easier for you to bring your food donation to the Bethel Transit Terminal, starting the week of November 23, we'll have a food bin available for you to drop your donation off with us.

Please find your way to donate and support our community. Stay safe!

To put your donations into perspective:

  • A $5 prepared food pack is great - it can provide six meals for one person.
