Okotoks, AB – The Okotoks Food Bank has been a beacon of hope for thousands of local families, serving as an indispensable lifeline. With 63,000 individuals receiving emergency food assistance in the past year alone, the need is undeniable. However, they do not have enough food to meet the needs of our community, and 10FOLD Group is reaching out to help.

Nathan Neufeld, CEO of 10FOLD Group Inc., recently reached out to the Okotoks Food Bank to identify their most pressing needs. The response was clear: as spring and summer arrive, donations wane, leaving shelves bare during a time when the need remains high. While generosity peaks during the colder months, the struggle to maintain supplies in warmer months poses a significant challenge. Nathan indicated, “I was unaware of the great need in Okotoks until I met with the Food Bank, and 10Fold Group wants to help”.

Recognizing the critical role the Okotoks Food Bank plays, 10Fold Group Inc. reached out to the Okotoks Sobeys, in launching the ‘Stuff the Truck’ initiative.

On Wednesday, May 29th, 2024, 10FOLD Group employees will gather at Sobeys for a massive shopping spree, filling carts to the brim with essential items for the Food Bank. Following the shopping event, 10FOLD employees will “STUFF THE TRUCK”, and then volunteer at the Food Bank, helping to restock shelves and assist in daily operations.

The ‘Stuff the Truck’ initiative aims to address this seasonal gap, ensuring that no one in our community goes hungry. But we can’t do it alone. Let us know if you want to help.

Here’s how you can join us in making a difference:

  1. Donate: Your contributions, whether monetary or non-perishable food items, are invaluable.
  2. Volunteer: Offer your time to help with food distribution, fundraising events, or administrative tasks.
  3. Organize a Food Drive: Encourage your community, workplace, or school to collect food donations.
  4. Spread Awareness: Share the message about the Okotoks Food Bank and its vital impact. Inspire others to get involved.

Every small act of kindness contributes to a stronger, more compassionate community. By supporting the Okotoks Food Bank, we ensure that everyone has access to nutritious meals, regardless of their circumstances. Let’s come together to make a meaningful difference right here in our own backyard.
