Be part of the change.

The Calgary Food Bank is one of the largest food banks in Canada and relies on the community for support. It would be nearly impossible for us to operate without the thousands of people who give their time volunteering (over 100,000 hours each year). 

Along with volunteering, we rely heavily on funds donated from the community fundraisers, monthly donations from generous donors,corporate donations, and one-time donations no matter how big or small. We could not do what we do without the support of our community. See other ways to give

To make a one-time donation, or to set up a monthly donation, donate today.

Every $1 donated allows us to distribute $5 worth of emergency food.
