Enjoy good food and good company at a good price


Mondays from 5 PM to 7 PM , starting in September 2021, Food & Friends will be operating from St George-in-the-Pines' Church Hall. The price will be free, but donations are welcome and can be made at the door. 

In March 2021 we launched a pilot of Banff Food and Friends, following COVID restrictions and offering take-away food in compostable containers. The three-month test showed us how amazing the community in Banff is, and how much of a demand there is in our community for good, affordable food, and for good community. 

Over the summer 2021 we are pausing Banff Food and Friends to be able to evaluate the pilot project, and relaunch in September, hopefully for in-person dining instead of take-away! 


Community Food and Friends Dinners offer a safe place for people from all segments of society, to come together every Monday evening, to enjoy the pleasure of a free, attractive, nutritious meal in a beautiful setting, with friends and neighbours. 


We are committed to providing high quality food that is nutritious and delicious. We are thankful for the leadership of our head chef Beat Hegnauer, who was the Executive Chef at the Banff Centre for many years.


This is not a soup kitchen approach toward feeding hungry people, but a community event that provides good nutrition, enhances food security, and brings about social cohesion.
