Oilfields Food Bank: Hunger Knows No Season

It may only be August but we’re gearing up for a busy season. School begins soon and it’s an expensive time. Families are faced with many back-to-school expenses and fees. We anticipate being busy.

November 7th and 8th will be the community food drive to help increase our inventory for the busy Christmas season. Firefighters from Black Diamond, Longview and Turner Valley will once again be going door-to-door. We are sincerely thankful for this yearly initiative and for our entire
Foothills community who always give so generously, to ensure folks have food on their table.

We’re located in the United Church in the Valley, 125 Royal Ave., Turner Valley (across from the elementary school)
