The Wood Buffalo Food Bank (WBFB) has secured a temporary location.

All community donations can now be directed to the Summit GM parking lot. They will then be passed on to the WBFB.

It’s currently working with Food Banks Alberta along with local partner agencies and has supplies on the way.

Emergency hamper pick-up locations will be in Thickwood and Gregoire.

Each neighbourhood will be notified which centre to go to for assistance.

These services are not limited to those affected by the flooding.

It is also reminding you that community groups that are currently self-organizing distribution centres are not endorsed by the food bank.

WBFB is asking that groups refrain from attempting their own operations and contact local emergency agencies.

Anyone in need of assistance is asked to contact their nearest Emergency Social Services registration centre.

Monetary donations are still be accepted and can be made online.
