Who is Blackfalds FCSS?

Blackfalds FCSS offers Community Programs and Courses, Community Group Support, Food Bank Information, Employment Support, Interagency Meetings, Subsidized Programs and Information & Referral Services.

FCSS provides preventative social programming and activities that use proactive, strength-based, and intentional 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 completed in 2016.

Lunch Box Program during COVID-19

The Blackfalds Family and Community Support Services (FCSS), After the Grind and Blackfalds Food Bank are continuing to support Blackfalds families during the pandemic to bring a box of healthy food supplies to help feed families.

Families with children 0-18, can pick up a box of breakfast & lunch supplies every week, thanks to the exceptional support of local donors.

Blackfalds Food Bank

Did you know that you can donate non perishable goods at our local grocery stores? If every time a person did their grocery shopping, they donated one item - our Food Bank would have shelves full to bursting!
Our Blackfalds Food Bank does not have a financial eligibility threshold. If you know someone who could benefit from the great local partnerships that the Food Bank Society has created - please refer them to FCSS so they can get the info necessary to make an appointment at the Food Bank.
Every week Cobb's Bakery in Red Deer donates bread, local farmers donate inspected beef and Lacombe Pik-n-Pak provides fresh vegetables!
Every Wednesday a group of volunteers meets and has hampers available for all of those benefiting from the Food Bank.
If you might have some time and an interest in supporting this worthwhile initiative please contact the Food Bank Manager, at 403.600.1768.
