August Fundraiser

Throughout August, we are raising funds for Edmonton's Food Bank. We'll donate $5 from every Appletini cocktail sale. Come to 5th St Food Hall and drink for a good cause.Edmonton's Food Bank (who was the first food bank in Canada when it opened in 1981) is committed to its mission: relieving hunger today and preventing hunger tomorrow. Between the pandemic and the recent inflation, Edmonton's Food Bank has seen its demand doubled since June 2020, but supplies are not following fast enough. Visit for more information.
