Media Room

The Calgary Food Bank is considered a trusted and valued source of information about emergency food access and food insecurity in our community. And since we are neither a government nor United Way funded agency, we host a number of events to raise awareness, food and funds.

Visit the links below  for our recent media releases and coverage to find out how we are making a difference in your community.
