How to Help

Vulcan Regional Food Bank Society’s goal for this year is to raise $20,000 and this amount raised will be going directly towards feeding families and communities in Vulcan and the surrounding area. It will cost our organization approximately $2500 to raise this amount, to be used towards staffing hours, advertising, fundraising events, and volunteer supervision in pursuit of our fundraising goal. Our address is 105B 3rd Avenue S, Vulcan, AB, T0L 2B0, and we are incorporated in Vulcan. Donations can be made at our office via cheque or cash, and direct e-transfers can be made at questions about any of our charitable initiatives can be directed to Meg or Dawn at 403-485-2192.

Donations are accepted year round

Cash and cheques are accepted in our office at 105B – 3rd Ave. S, Vulcan or by mail at Box 594 Vulcan, AB T0L 2B0.  Tax receipts are mailed out for monetary donations.

Items we CAN accept:
  • Non-perishable items are accepted – please check the Best Before Dates before donating
  • Specialty items such as Gluten-free and diabetic items
  • Fresh, clean garden vegetables
  • Meat and Eggs from a Federally Inspected facility. Please call before donating these items.
Items we CANNOT accept:
  • Homemade preserves or baking.
  • Used furniture and clothing

We do have a Give-and-Take board to help match people giving away items with people who may be in need of items but the Food Bank cannot store them.  These items can potentially be donated to Quarks Consignment and SODA Thrift Store in Vulcan.  

We appreciate all donations and thank our very generous community for all the ways you support the people in our community through the Food Bank.

Angel Tree Gifts for Christmas Hampers and Adopt-a-Family are collected at the Food Bank.
