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. View Other Ways to Give below!
To make a one-time donation, or to set up a monthly donation, visit our DONATION page.Every $1 donated allows us to distribute $5 worth of emergency food.
We accept non-perishable donations at
most grocery stores, as well as at our main
warehouse at 5000 11 Street SE. We can also
accept perishable donations such as milk, eggs or meat. Click to learn more about food donations.
From sorting food, making thank you calls,
and distributing food to clients, there are many volunteer opportunities for you. Come alone, come with
friends and family, and know that you're all working
together to create a hunger-free community.
