Lunch Box Program during COVID-19

Blackfalds Family and Community Support Services (FCSS), Blackfalds Food Bank and After the Grind have partnered together to bring Blackfalds families healthy lunches.

Every Tuesday and Thursday at noon, staff and volunteers will safely provide residents with their boxes, while maintaining social distancing. On Tuesday’s residents will also be able to receive breakfast supplies to support nutritious breakfasts through out the week. Those who have registered will receive a weekly email and will be able to pre-order if they need to access the program. There is no eligibility to access this program, outside of being a resident of Blackfalds.

Blackfalds FCSS would like to thank Telus, Vesta, Go Services, DOW, ME Global, Gurleen’s Enterprises Ltd, Optimist Club of Blackfalds, Central Alberta United Way, Wolf Creek School Division and various other organizations, businesses and generous community members for their financial support during this time. Blackfalds Food Bank Society was also successful in receiving the social services support for COVID-19 funding with the Alberta Government to support this initiative.

If you are interested in donating to the program or registering for the program, please contact fcss@blackfalds.com or call 403.600.9066

Who is Blackfalds FCSS?

FCSS provides preventative social programming and activities that use proactive, strength-based, and international strategies to help  individuals, families and communities develop skills required to form a strong sense of self, resulting in the ability to build healthy relationships with others.

The Blackfalds Family & Community Support Services (FCSS) priorities are determined through a Social Needs Assessment, which includes substantial input from the members of our community. The present Social Needs Assessment and Master Plan was recently completed in late 2016.
