A former client of the Calgary Food Bank revisits the warehouse, reflects on her time as a client while learning how the organization works from within.
James McAra, President and CEO of the Calgary Food Bank, discusses the frustrating reality that food isn't a part of our emergency planning, despite it's undisputed necessity.
For many Calgarians, 2015 was a tough year. We went through a lot together in the last 365 days, some good and some bad, but we're grateful for all the amazing people we've met through our neighbourhood events or volunteering, and the clients who have touched our lives.
As 2015 came to a close, so did one of Calgary's most visually stimulating fundraising campaigns.
What a whirlwind! Blitz Day is the busiest day in December for fundraising for Calgarians in need at the food bank. Companies and individuals, big and small, come together to join in on the giving season! The money raised helps Calgarians during the Christmas season, but also year-round.
The 14th annual Amble with Angus fun run and walk had it's biggest year ever!
The month of December is hard for Calgarians for a lot of reasons, and sometimes, it’s hard to know where to look for help. Though we have our own program around the holidays, as a food bank our mandate is food first. That said, we do our best to get Calgarians the support they need, food or not.
Find out what events are going on this month, plus how to get involved and how to make a difference! We hope to see you there.
