Doors Open YYC

Saturday, September 23, 2017 • 10 am – 4 pm

The Calgary Food Bank with 40 other businesses is participating in Doors Open YYC, on September 23. DOYYC 2017 will be Calgary’s sixth annual event where participating businesses open their doors – free of charge – to the public and providing special revealing tours and behind-the-scenes experiences. The event is planned and organized by the Doors Open Calgary Association.

We are very excited to be involved again this year and believe it is an incredible opportunity to share the impact that donations to the Food Bank make, and to show all citizens what we mean when we say the Calgary Food Bank is truly ‘community owned and community supported’! Come down and see our 60,000 square foot warehouse, find out how the Calgary Food Bank works and how we process over 9 million pounds of food in a year.

We can’t wait to see you on September 23 for Doors Open YYC 2017.
