Mountain View Food Bank Continuing To Serve The Community During Unprecedented Times

The Mountain View Food Bank is located at 5025 50th Street and it is open each Tuesday from 9am until 1pm.

96.5 CKFM spoke to Pat Graham - a Director with the Mountain View Food Bank - on Monday, March 23rd.

Mountain View Food Bank continues to see great demand for its services in 2020.

Pat Graham with the Food Bank says their volunteers have prepackaged about 30 hampers in the hopes of keeping the line moving this Tuesday, March 24th.

The Food Bank opens each Tuesday from 9am until 1pm at its location at 5025 50th Street in Olds (the old Provincial Building).

She says they have been busy since the beginning of the year and that has only intensified during the unprecedented economic downturn and the COVID-19 pandemic. Graham adds, they had about 120 families in last week and the week before that there was a few more.

Graham notes that individuals will be able to come in one at a time to pick up a prepacked hamper. The Food Bank has eliminated its free table area but still available will be bread, potatoes and some fresh vegetables.

To help out as a volunteer or make donations please contact 403-556-1693.
