Oilfields Food Bank Has New Website

Visit the new website:

Take some time and have a look around. It’s taken us a while but it’s done.

You can: request a hamper, volunteer to help or make a donation. All of the information you want, all in one place …what a concept!

The Board appreciates the work that local resident Bob Jackson did, donating both his time and many talents to complete this task for us.

Thank you, BOB!

We expect to see increased need for the balance of 2020. These are uncertain times and quite unpredictable but we are in it together. 

The Oilfields Food Bank remains open. We are 100% volunteer-driven.

Cash donations to help us purchase what is needed are very welcome. We now accept donations online.

Cheques may be mailed to:
Oilfields Food Bank
Box 1318, Turner Valley, AB T0L 2A0

As always we are open Tuesdays from 1-3 for food hampers. Clients may use the food bank twice a month during the pandemic.

How to request a hamper:
– online at our website
– or give us a call @ 403-612-1291 – the line will be open for hamper requests on Mondays from 9am – 5pm and Tuesdays from 9am – 2pm.

You will be given a pickup time and your hamper will be placed outside for you to load into your vehicle.

We would like to keep drop-off donations to a minimum. Our volunteers are awesome and to protect them we want to limit the amount of extra handling and sorting they need to do during the pandemic. The Food Bank places a weekly order with the grocery store  to re-stock our inventory.

We will accept drop off food on Tuesdays from 11am – 12 (noon).

Most Needed Items:

  • flour
  • tinned tuna & salmon
  • pancake mix & syrup
  • cooking oil
  • toilet paper
  • pet food
