Good Afternoon Volunteers:


Can you help us out?


Edmonton’s Food Bank is excited to announce that we have been selected by the Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation, to be the beneficiaries of 50/50 ticket sales at the upcoming March 26, 2019 NHL Game vs the Los Angeles Kings at Rogers Place.


This is a wonderful opportunity for us, with the potential to receive upwards of $10,000+!


But we need YOUR help to make this possible.


We require 55-70 volunteers for this event. 


Please sign up as an individual or get a group together and help us raise money to feed our neighbours in need.
