HOW YOU CAN HELP

You CAN Make A Difference

In March 2013, almost 900,000 Canadians accessed food banks in one month.  In 2017, Interfaith Food Bank provided food for approximately 1700-1900 citizens in Lethbridge per month, nearly half of whom are children.  Individual Canadians can take action to help solve the problem of hunger in Canada.  You can make a difference.

DONATE

Interfaith Food Bank Society of Lethbridge relies heavily upon donations of food, funds, and gifts in kind from within our community.  We are only able to give what we receive.

We are constantly recruiting donations of non-perishable food items. For additional details and information please download a copy of our Food Drive Toolkit.

These are only a few of the limitless opportunities. Take a look at our Food Drive Toolkit or Great Ideas Page for more ideas, as well as tips to make your endeavor even more successful!
