Saturday, March 25th, 2023 marks Cochrane’s first Food Drive of the year, kicking off in the neighbourhoods of GlenEagles, East End, Downtown, Glenbow and Riverview.

Donated food should be placed on your step by 10am, so a volunteer can swing by and pick it up from you. Please note, a volunteer may knock if they do not see a donation on your step – just in case you have forgotten.

Helping Hands will no longer be distributing plastic bags for donations, so please use a reusable bag or a recyclable box.

If you’d like to volunteer to help out, please email:

There will be three more Food Drive coming up this year, so be sure to mark the date for your area of Cochrane.
