Fun Project Ideas

One of the many great qualities of our donors is the creative ways they think of supporting our clients. Some of the most creative projects are the ones that are easily taken on by our youngest donors. If you have a great idea that isn't on the list,  give us a call and tell us about it!

Consider Other Stuff

While our primary purpose is to collect and distribute emergency food to Calgarians in need, sometimes it’s nice to hand out a little something else.

Thinking of making a food donation to the Food Bank? Wonderful!
