Alberta Farm to Food Bank seeks donations, new partners

Alberta Farm to Food Bank is looking to cultivate new relationships with people looking to help their communities.

Since 2018, the organization has donated more than 100,000 pounds of fresh produce to Alberta charities, and is now seeking monetary donations in order to provide even more fresh, healthy produce for Albertans in need.

Founded in 2018, Alberta Farm to Food Bank, located near Pigeon Lake, offers locally-grown, farm fresh produce direct to food banks in the province.

“The idea is simple: If we support local, we make our communities stronger,” said Steve Breum, Alberta Farm to Food Bank founder.

Albertans donate to the organization, the organization pays farmers to grow produce — helping to keep small farms alive, and the produce is donated directly to food banks across the province.

Alberta Farm to Food Bank is aiming to expand its efforts to include even more farms and food banks in rural communities across the province, including Indigenous communities.

To donate to the cause, become a food bank partner or for farmers interested in joining the mission, visit www.albertafarmtofoodbank.com.
