The Wood Buffalo Food Bank has found a temporary space to act as a hamper packing centre.
While the WBFB is currently waiting for final approval in terms of food and safety policies, they are reminding residents that community donations are to be directed to the Summit GM parking lot, where they will be passed along to the Food Bank from there.
Until now, the the WBFB had been receiving supplies from Food Banks Alberta and is currently working with local partner agencies to get emergency operations in place for distribution.
For hamper pick up, there will be two different locations, one in Thickwood and one in Gregoire, with each neighbourhood being notified which centre to go to for assistance.
For anyone looking to volunteer, opportunities will be posted on the WBVolunteers website.
