WECAN connects individuals and families on limited and or fixed incomes with a basket of fresh produce and frozen meat items. The Food Basket program is designed to replenish the refrigerator the third week of the month when food supplies and funds are in short supply.
Volunteers are the heart and soul of any community based organization and the WECAN Food Basket Society’s volunteers are no exception!
Each depot has a group of dedicated volunteers that sort the bulk groceries into orders. There are depots in Morinville, Gibbons, and Westlock (see full list of depots).
Volunteer Order Delivery Drivers This is a newly created role in response to the COVID-19, pick up orders from a depot, drop it off at member's residence following the rules in place for social distancing. All drivers need a vehicle that will accommodate the order and proof of license and insurance. This is a once a month role, usually in the third week of each month.
