What We’re Doing

For the next three months, we’re asking our salaried employees to give up the equivalent of one hour of their monthly salary and donate it to the Edmonton Food Bank. Where we can, the companies themselves will match those donations.

Join us!

By pulling together as many companies as possible, we can make a major impact for the Edmonton Food Bank in what they expect will be the busiest time they have ever experienced.

Why are we doing this?

As an industry, we are lucky – the unprecedented situation with COVID-19 will likely be something we adjust to, rather than something that poses an existential threat to our businesses.

A lot of our staff will be protected from the worst of the economic impacts of COVID-19.

However, there are many people in our economy – wait staff; people who rely on retail shifts; airline staff; artists; substitute teachers – that suddenly find themselves in a precarious situation they could not have expected.

Join us!

We know that the Edmonton Food Bank is bracing for an extreme demand for their services. They will need all the help they can get.

Let's give them our support!
