Sadly, many Calgarians continue to struggle and the demand for emergency food support is still at an all-time high. This past year there was an 8% increase in client visits, representing more than 184,078 lives that were affected. Over 68,000 emergency hampers were distributed, which translates to 3.5 million meals for Calgarians in crisis. But beyond the numbers, your support makes an impact on our clients’ lives every day.
Because of your generosity, you enable us to keep pace and to support all who come through our doors. ‘Community owned, community supported’ is not a trite description, it is a truth and speaks to the mind-boggling efforts of the donors and volunteers at the Calgary Food Bank.
