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.








Donate 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
like as milk, eggs or meat. Learn more.

Donate funds

One-time and monthly donations help us in many
ways, like purchasing milk, eggs, meats and produce
that isn't regularly donated. You may also receive a
tax receipt for your donation. Donate .

Volunteer your time

From sorting food, making thank you calls, to
distributing food to clients, there are many volunteer
 available. Come alone, come with friends
and family, and know that we are all working together to
create a hunger-free community.
