Good Buy To Hunger
May 28, 2024

We're excited to announce that our fall Good Buy to Hunger campaign is back! From August 22nd to September 4th, 2024, we're supporting local school breakfast and lunch programs. Last year, together, we raised $21,711.78 for these programs. Let's do it again this year and help provide meals for our kids. Have your local school apply to be one of this year's recipients, and join us in making our community healthier and stronger!

From March 14th to April 3rd, 2024 we helped say Good Buy to Hunger by collectively raising $28,008 for our local food banks! We extend our heartfelt gratitude for continually raising the standard in supporting the communities we call home.

Between November 16th and December 6th, 2023, members and customers helped us say Good Buy to Hunger by making a donation in support of their local Food Bank at all North Central Co-op food store locations. We're so thrilled to share that together we raised a whopping $35,165! A huge thank you to all the members, customers and team members who contributed!

We are dedicated to fostering the well-being of the communities we serve. From August 24th to September 6th, 2023 we ran a Good Buy to Hunger campaign in support of local school lunch programs. Thanks to the generosity of our customers and members, together we raised $21,711.78. This significant contribution will play a vital role in nourishing young minds in our communities. We deeply appreciate your generosity and support in making a positive impact on the lives of the children around us.

From March 16th to April 12th, 2023 North Central Co-op customers and members raised $28,500 for our local food banks during our spring Good Buy to Hunger campaign! Thank you to everyone who donated what you could. It makes a huge difference in our communities.

Thanks to the generosity and kindness of our members and customers we were able to raise $33,200 or the equivalent of 3320 hampers, during our November 2022 Good Buy to Hunger campaign!

Between November 12th and December 1st, 2021 members and customers helped us say Good Buy to Hunger by either drop off non-perishables food items, purchasing a $10 Good Buy to Hunger Bag or by making a cash donation in support of their local Food Bank at a participating North Central Co-op location.

Together, we helped raise $43,656.38 at the till in support of Edmonton's Food Bank, the Veterans Association Food Bank, Parkland County Food Bank, Fort Saskatchewan Food Bank and the Strathcona Food Bank.
