Charitable Giving

Italian Bakery’s Mercato is not only committed to family, quality ingredients, and great food, but also to making a positive impact in the communities we serve.

Each year we receive a massive number of requests for donations. While we would like to be able to grant each and every request, unfortunately it’s not possible. As a result, we have established a charitable giving policy to make sure the donated dollars and items make the most impact possible.

To be considered for funding or sponsorship an organization must be in good financial standing, have a mission statement focused on our local communities, and be Edmonton/St. Albert based.
