The Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation was delighted to donate approximately $100,000 of food to Edmonton's Food Bank in October 2020. In addition, when the Food Bank was facing a critical gap in donations last season, the EOCF hosted a food drive during four Oilers home games and the annual Skills Competition. Fans did not disappoint, and generously donated more than $10,000 and more than 21,000 lbs of food for Edmonton's Food Bank. To kick off the effort and build momentum, Safeway proudly donated $10,000 in food aid and the EOCF matched the donation, for a total of $20,000 in food support. This was the second largest food drive for Edmonton's Food Bank, second only to the Heritage Festival.
The EOCF has a longstanding relationship with Edmonton's Food Bank, having partnered on the Rock and Wrap it Up program since 2010. Since inception, the partnership has seen the EOCF donate more than 84,000 pounds of food, which has created more than 59,000 meals. Rogers Place has donated 44,508 pounds since opening in 2016, creating 25,579 meals for the Edmonton community.
