For over 80 years, the Christmas Bureau has maintained one tradition: to provide a festive meal to Edmontonians in need.

Our Food Hamper program remains to be an essential service for individuals, families, seniors, and youth every holiday season.

This program funds the preparation, coordination, and delivery of over 3000 food hampers every season to Edmontonians in December with many volunteers, partners, politicians, board, and staff ensuring these hampers are ready to go for our clients before December 25.



Each hamper consists of a traditional Christmas dinner, including turkey or ham, stuffing, potatoes, cakes, vegetables,fruit,  cookies, and juice. But let’s be honest, some may not want a turkey or ham. This is why we also offer Sobey’s gift cards to ensure families have accessibility to purchase their holiday meal, because our mission is simple -  to promote the Christmas spirit, connect with all communities, and ensure our services are accessible.
