The Red Deer Food Bank is seeking more meat donations after somebody broke into a sea can of stored frozen meat products on the weekend.

“Some Monday’s start off…. rough,” the Red Deer Food Bank posted on its Facebook page, noting that some of the sea can thefts also include dairy products.

“We are especially needing small packages of meat, like hamburgers and chicken. Please. if you are able, add some of these items to your donation. Thank you,” the post concludes.

According to Red Deer RCMP, police officers were called on Monday at around 9 a.m. to the Red Deer Food Bank at 12-7429 49 Ave. to investigate a reported break-in to a sea-can storage unit.

The theft is believed to have occurred sometime between 3:30 p.m. Saturday and 8 a.m. on Monday.

A pallet of meat was among the stolen items.

Red Deer RCMP investigated, but as there was no video surveillance available, a suspect has not been identified.
