Acme Food Bank

The Acme and District Food Bank has been in existence since 1973. It has been able to help many people in need because of the generous support of people, businesses and non-profit groups in the communities of Acme, Linden, Swalwell, Sunnyslope and the surrounding areas.

Currently we are storing the food at the Acme Curling Rink and have been for years. The Acme Curling Club have renovated their building to accommodate the Food Bank with a larger storage facility. For that we are extremely thankful.

We gratefully take donations throughout the year. The Village of Acme will take the cash or cheque donations and can make out the tax receipts for you there. If anyone would like to donate non-perishable food items you can call anyone of the committee members listed below.

There are also some key events that happen in Acme that will accept donations for the Food Bank such as The Annual Acme Fire Department Candy Cane Run which usually takes place about a week before Christmas. The Acme School Christmas Concert also asks parents to bring a non-perishable food item when they come to the concert. These are just some of the events but there are many others.

Acme Angels

The Acme Community Angels is an organization started in 2006. Our goal is to make Acme a safe and caring community. We feel the first way to feel safe is to know your neighbours. So in order for you to meet those neighbours in an easy laid back environment, we plan community events every few months. Everyone is more than welcome at these…families, couples, singles, seniors, teens…you get the idea. Keep your eyes open for coming events. We advertise by posters around town, Village of Acme Newsletter & Acme Reader Boards.

If you have any questions, or would like to volunteer, please feel free to call Trish (403) 546-3988.

Come and join the fun!!!!
