 We ask the following from all clients:

  • Be on time: Please be out front at your appointment time.
  • If you are late: Call us ASAP if you cannot make your appointment time. Hampers are taken apart after 15 minutes past the designated appointment time if we haven’t heard from you. If this happens, you will need to go to the walk-in door instead.
  • If you miss your appointment time without notifying the food bank, you may lose access to appointments and will need to come as a walk-in next time.
  • Walk-ins: Two people allowed in food bank building:  To provide proper social distancing, we are only allowing 2 clients inside the waiting area at a time.


The Edson Food Bank Society:
  • expects all clients and volunteers to always show respect, be truthful and fair in all behavior at Edson Food Bank. 
  • sets a dignified and non-judgmental environment for anyone needing to access food at Edson Food Bank Society. 
  • requires and maintains basic client records that will be stored confidentially.  Data compiled from this information does not disclose information about individual clients, but is needed to ensure our operation is accountable to our donors, funders and the general public.
Failure to meet our expectations will result in suspension of access to the food bank for periods of time.  Repeat offenses will result in longer suspensions.
Any compliments or concerns about Edson Food Bank Society operations should be sent first to the EFB Team —  780-725-3185 (call or text).  If not satisfactorily resolved, then you may contact Edson Food Bank Society at
