About Us

Erickson & Area Food Bank Inc. (EAFB) is a non-profit, charitable organization, working to reduce hunger, increase food security, and build resiliency in our region. Our motto is: "FOOD FOR ALL/ 'Gakina Awiyaa Omiciwin' 

We are situated on the ancestral lands of the Anishnaabe, Oji-Cree, Dakota, Lakota, Dene and Metis peoples. We serve Rolling River First Nation (Treaty 4), Keeseekoowenin First Nation (Treaty 2), and the RM's of Erickson-Clanwilliam and Harrison Park

We are dedicated to recognizing the harms of the past, and to moving forward in healing and reconciliation. By working together, we will make a better future for all.

Our Vision

"Fostering health, social justice, and long-term food security"

Food Security Projects 

Food insecurity is a pressing issue in Canada, affecting millions of people, including 1 in 5 children.

It's alarming that many food insecure households are working households.

At the Erickson & Area Food Bank, we strive to provide nutritious food and support health and wellness programs.

Our mission is to help those in need and create a healthier, more secure community.

In our words ...

" When my job ended and I went on EI, I came to the Erickson & Area Food Bank. I'm so glad I did. They treated me with respect., and helped me get back on my feet."

"This place is more than just a Food Bank. It's a safe place to come, have a cup of coffee, pick up food, and know you will be treated well".

"Let's face it... it's hard these days. The cost of food keeps going up and there are days when I just don't know how I'm going to feed my family. Thanks to the Erickson & Area Food Bank I know we're not going to go hungry."

"I love Soup/Naboop Days at the Food Security HUB! Its great to share good food with good people."

"The Food Bank and Food Security HUB have been life savers. I honestly didn't know where to turn and was shy to come in at first. Everyone made me feel welcome. It's also confidential, and that is so important to me."

"I like that there are people of all ages and backgrounds working together here and at the HUB. As an Indigenous person, this feels like a safe space."
