What started in 2012 as an excuse to get together with some of our favourite people and enjoy delicious Vietnamese soup during a cold, dismal month turned into what we think is a pretty tasty annual fundraiser.
We've been fortunate to do what we do for a couple of decades now. Through ups and downs we've never lost sight just how lucky we are to be able to put food on the table. So, when we came up with the idea for Phobruary, it seemed only right that we do something for those in need.
Times are tough and eDMONTON'S FOOD BANK IS BUSY
Each month, more than 20,000 people receive food hampers and almost 500,000 meals and snacks are distributed through more than 250 agencies, churches or food depots. Approximately 40 per cent of clients served are children under 18.
YOU CAN help
It's easy. Use the month of Phobruary as your excuse to get together with your friends, family, colleagues and clients over hot, delicious soup… and donate to the Food Bank!
