1 Year Anniversary Food Drive

1 Year Anniversary Food Drive – Our Little Food Library – Week of April 10-17

The Little Food Library has been helping feed Brentwoodians for almost a year, supporting those who have been hit the hardest by the pandemic. We have also met so many Brentwood neighbours who struggled with financial and food security on a daily basis even before COVID-19. The Little Food Library continues to provide quick, easy access to basic staples, while maintaining anonymity and the community spirit of ‘sharing’.

Saturday April 10th will be almost exactly one year since we started. Please drop-off non-perishable goods between 1:00 – 4:00pm Saturday (or when it works) at  3624 Boulton Rd. If you’d like to donate a gift card that works too – please place in envelope and text Liza at 403 606 6949, e-transfer works as well Liza Lorenzetti lakloren@ucalgary.ca Bring your own coffee, mask and perhaps take a 10 person, 3m social break for a few minutes (1:00 -3:00pm). Weather permitted, we will be serving homemade treats and have distanced chairs set up on the lawn.

Thank you to everyone who contributed over the past year, here are some pictures showing Brentwood’s overwhelming generosity!

In keeping with the season, we ask for food items that are resistant to freezing such as dried soups, packaged grains, lentils, quinoa, chickpeas, beans, peas, pasta, packaged oatmeal and other cereals, peanut butter, coffee, pancake mix, biscuits, granola bars.

On warmer days, please consider donating items such as canned chili, chunky soups, canned fish of any type, tetra packs of almond, rice, soya or oat milk, spaghetti sauce, apple sauce and other canned fruit.
