Food Rescue ~ Volunteers rescue food from local grocery stores that would have been thrown out due to damage, excess or imminent best before dates. The food is sorted, labeled, and distributed through the Salvation Army Office from the ‘self-serve’ Market.
The Market is open every Tues and Thursday from 1:00 - 4:00 (or until the food runs out) AND every 2nd Thurs is from 5 - 7pm instead of 1-4. All community members are welcome attend the market and help yourselves to 2 plastic grocery bags of food. Some days may be restricted to one bag per person depending on amount rescued.
The fridge and freezer have been proudly donated by Western Financial Group and Rotary.
The Food Rescue initiative would not be possible without our participating local grocery stores:
High River Sobey's, Stephen's No Frills and High River Co-Op.
