Connecting to the food supply

Connecting to the food supply

Over 35 years ago, Calgary Food Bank founders recognized the importance of redirecting viable food to support the community. We continue to connect the dots through food gleaning direct from industry. We connect with food retailers to help them understand the importance of donating quality items; and we work with transportation companies to get the food where it needs to be.

“When I picked up my generous hamper last Tuesday, I was almost out of money with no job prospects. A message on my answering machine at home let me know I had a temp job starting the following Monday. It’s been a good week, thanks in part to plenty of food in the fridge and cupboard. Than you all for being a wonderful encouragement to me and making a big difference in my life.”

Food Bank Client

This was my first visit to the Calgary Food Bank. I was never treated better in my time of need. Thank you ALL.

 

This place is so wonderful, helpful and friendly! The amazing generosity is a plus, too! As someone coming just for myself, not a family, you probably gave me enough food for a month! Thank you so much! P.S. The woman helper in the foyer with the side snapped hat, so elegant and nice!

 

Thank you soooo much for the Food Hampers for the past four years. As a student and single mother, the food bank has helped my family greatly with providing healthy meals. My hope is that one day I will be able to give back the way the food bank has given to me and my family. Thank you.

 

Who would have ever thought to university-educated, well-traveled people with $200,000 income, two cars, pets and would end up homeless after the flood? Yep, that happened to us! We lost absolutely everything including both dogs. Of course many lives were changed for ever and many where homeless as a result. We're both only children, no parents (both sets deceased) and we had to start from square one. We were fortunate to be housed thanks to U of C alumni for one month. Vacancy rates being as atrocious as they are (less than 1 per cent at the time) equaled horrific circumstances. So, once we found adequate housing, we stocked up our fridge and freezer compliments of the Calgary Food Bank. We came on our own three times and were referred by agencies twice, making that five times. The volunteers on the lines of interaction are awesome. Thank you for everything. We couldn't have made it through without the help of our neighbours.

 

I would have never thought I would be in need of food for my family and have no money to do so. I pay the bills and have no food, or buy food and pay no bills. From a well paying job to no job. But things are slowly turning around. To all of you a heartfelt thank-you! Your patience, understanding, empathy and kindness has made this difficult and embarrassing time a lot easier. myself and my children will not forget! As soon as things are back on track we will be back, but this time to volunteer. To help others as you have all helped us. All our best to you and your families.
