The semi-annual event is an excellent demonstration of true community spirit! In 2015 over 800 volunteers conducted the two Cochrane & Area Food Drives in support of the Cochrane Activettes Food Bank. Over 60,000 lbs of food were collected. The Food Drive continues to help the Food Bank meet the community’s needs.
This popular community-wide event continues to grow along with our town. Hundreds of volunteers come out twice per year to support the Cochrane Activettes Food Bank and fill its shelves!
This is a great community event, complete with free refreshments served to all volunteers. If you want to get involved, email or call 587-580-9448 today!

Saturday, April 21, 2018
Collection site is Cochrane Alliance Church @ 902 Glenbow Dr, Cochrane, AB
Bags will be delivered with your Cochrane Eagle newspaper the week before. Let’s fill the Activettes Food Bank!
We are currently looking for pick up assistance in rural areas surrounding Cochrane … like Springbank, Bearspaw, Bragg Creek and Redwood Meadows.
This is a great way for families to volunteer together to support those less fortunate in our own community.
Do you have a club or team that would like to help? Please get in touch today!
A special thank you to “Spray Lake Sawmills Family
Sports Centre” for hosting the Fall Food Drives.
