WECAN Food Basket Society
About WECAN Food Basket
The WECAN Food Basket Society operates as a “warehouse without walls” – we buy all our food in bulk and distribute it to our community based depots. Volunteers working with local churches, community centres, social service agencies and daycares, staff the depots located throughout the greater Edmonton area. Once a month volunteer drivers pick up the food from our supplier, The Grocery People Warehouse, and take it to the depots. Our volunteers then count, sort and pack the baskets ready for pick up.
The WECAN Food Basket Society provides families and individuals with food security by giving them the opportunity to purchase nutritious food at an affordable price.
The Program in Tofield-Ryley
Members prepay for their food baskets by the first Friday of each month by depositing their order envelope: (Tofield) in the book depository at the Tofield Municipal Library, or (Ryley) in the mail slot at the Village of Ryley Office. Then, orders can be picked up on the third or fourth Thursday of the month (see table at right) at (Tofield) Bardo Lutheran Church, or (Ryley) Ryley Municipal Office.
A WECAN Food Basket consists of…
Fresh food is the staple of any healthy diet. Our food offering
- Meat Order ($15): 2-3 cuts of frozen meat,
- Produce Order ($10): 3 types of fresh vegetables
and 3 kinds of seasonal fruit
Members can order whatever quantity of each order they
would like, for example:
2 produce + 1 meat = $35 OR 2 meat + 1 produce = $40
