Posted by Kirby Cox on Thursday, December 4th, 2014 at 4:29pm.



We are proud to support the Calgary Food Bank every year, and during the holiday season, there is especially a need for help. If you're looking for a non-profit to support this time of year, consider them.

Some quick facts about the Calgary Food Bank:

  • Every day, between 80 and 100 people volunteer at the Food Bank
  • Last year, almost 4,400 individual and group volunteers supported the Food Bank: 112,300 hours of time to help feed hungry Calgarians

You can help in a variety of ways, such as: 

Donate Food:

  • Drop off non-perishable food in Calgary Food Bank donation bins at any major grocery store in your neighborhood.
  • Drop off fresh or non-perishable donations directly to the Calgary Food Bank warehouse at 5000 - 11 Street SE, Door #3 at the loading bay.
Donate Money: 

  • You can donate online here
  • You can call 403-253-2059 for more information about donations
Donate Time:
 
  • There is an increased need for volunteers now through December 24th for special events. You can call 403-253-2059 or email: volunteer@calgaryfoodbank.com for information.
