Edmonton Foodbank which was birth in 2011, officially opened in December 2012 and became operational in April 2013, was the vision of the New Covenant Church Edmonton leaders under the guidance of Pastor Tayo Arowojolu. It is a charitable organisation that provides a minimum of 3days emergency food (non-perishable) to the hungry. It is part of the Trussell Trust, which is a Christian charity committed to alleviating poverty in the UK and Bulgaria. The services of Foodbanks are often mixed up with that of the social security/benefits agencies which are organisations required by law to cater for the unemployed and those on low income. Edmonton Foodbank is mostly run by volunteers who help sort and give out food to the customers /clients not more than three (3) collections within a space of six (6) months.Edmonton foodbank’s activities and aims for 2015 include the following:
