The Rimbey Food Bank recently received a grant from Foodbanks Canada and were then able to purchase a new freezer and shelving to organize and store more food in order to make the food bank more functional and productive.

The grant was the 2020 Rural and Northern Capacity Fund from Foodbanks Canada.

“We were able to move chest freezers to the lower room of the food bank to house big items such as turkeys etc. and make room for the new double door freezer for weekly use,” noted a release.

“Also, our first Cultured Chef was filmed and will be out on social media and our web site. The Cultured Chef is a new program where people from the community teach how to cook a dish that is from their country where they were previously from or a dish from thier heritage.

“FCSS has partnered with Rimbey Evergreen Co-op to produce this program in hopes of community connection with everyone re-creating the dish at home. The Coop will provide kits for purchase from Monday, April 19th to Friday the 23rd.”

Anyone can phone Co-op to order thier kit, which will come in a few different sizes to suit all families. If the kit is ordered by 11 a.m. it can be picked up by 4 p.m. the same day.

If someone would like to participate and cannot afford the kit, they can call FCSS. Our first Cultured Chef is Irene Makofka who is from the Philippines and she will demonstrate how to make Chop Suey and Adobong Manok.
