Stettler Fire and Rescue, along with ATCO, team up for the charity project.

Fire department and ATCO crews, and other volunteers, plan to canvass Stettler homes from 6 to 9 p.m. and deliver to the refurbished headquarters of Stettler and District Food Bank Society, which is based at the Stettler United Church.

All donated food items are appreciated, said fire chief Mark Dennis, with a continuous need for canned fruits and vegetables, canned meats, cheese spread, pasta, macaroni, rice, juices and cereals.

Home canning, pickles and jams are not allowed under health regulations, the food bank reported.

Financial donations are also accepted.

For easy and simple pickup, people are requested to leave donations in a bag or box at an accessible door.
