Delivering tightly-wrapped hot meals and food bank hampers to families throughout Edmonton through our "community food truck" program.

Volunteer drivers are assigned addresses in relative proximity to one another, grouped by area of the city (northeast, south, downtown, etc.) to make the task easier.

We typically meet on Wednesdays at 11:45 A.M. at our community food truck. The food truck will be parked at one of two locations:

1) The intersection of 91 Street and 83 Ave. (one block north of Whyte Ave. and very close to the Campus Saint-Jean). Postal code: T6C 1B6.

2) The Value Village at the intersection of Fort Road and 137 Ave. (where Fort Road becomes Manning Drive, at the southwest corner of the intersection). Exact address: 13530 Fort Road NW, T5A 1C5.

We will be sure to let you know where the food truck will be parked well in advance.
