Adopt-a-Family, sponsor a 2019 Christmas Food Hamper

Instructions

Please read all the way to the bottom.

Hamper sponsors have the option to purchase the listed non-perishable items themselves and drop them of on either December 13 or 14th between 3 and 7pm, at the evangelical free church, 28 Westland Road, Okotoks. (That is across the Tim Hortons & Wendy’s location in behind the Lakeview Inn hotel)

Hamper sponsors that cannot drop-off the sponsored non-perishable items themselves can elect for us to go shop for all the food items.

Sponsors do NOT purchase any of the perishable items, volunteers of the Okotoks Foodbank do that the day of the hamper distribution to ensure everybody receives the freshest possible ingredients for their dinner.

The Okotoks Foodbank also arranges for roasting pans and cranberry sauce for all hampers plus all the perishable items:
turkey or ham, milk, butter, medium cheese, mixed vegetables, potatoes, whole wheat bread, buns, pie(s), eggs and oranges.

Sponsors can adopt a single person up to a 7+ people household. With or without doing the non-perishable shopping/drop-off yourself. Once we have enough sponsors in a certain size group of families that sponsor option will become unavailable. Last year the Okotoks Foodbank delivered over 220 hampers.
