About The Vulcan Regional Food Bank Society
Vulcan Regional Food Bank Society is a charitable organization dedicated to providing food security. It serves the residents of Vulcan, Vulcan County, Brant, Arrowwood, Milo, Lomond, Champion and Carmangay. It is run by a Board of Directors, staff and volunteers. The Food Bank relies entirely on donations and grants.
The Food hampers are available year round to low income residents, the number of hampers available depends on supply. Christmas Hampers are available, as well as Adopt-a-Family / Angel Tree Gifts that go out with hampers.
After Hours Emergency Hampers are available at the Vulcan Health Centre (Hospital) if someone is experiencing a food emergency outside of Food Bank hours.
Vulcan Regional Food Bank Society works closely with local businesses and partner organizations to provide sustainable food accessibility and integrated support to our clients. Food Banks Canada and Food Banks Alberta help support local food banks as well.
The Alberta Rural Development Network (ARDN) Reaching Home Project funding is available through the Food Bank to help prevent homelessness. Clients needing emergency shelter, connection to safe permanent housing, medical transportation or short term financial support can apply with a bank statement, invoices and an interview.
