Welcome Home Program

Working in conjunction with the Community Kitchen Program of Calgary, the Welcome Home Program tackles food insecurity for the newly housed population by providing pantry staples, cleaning supplies, and hygiene items. Based on referrals from approved organizations, hampers are delivered to individuals or families who are transitioning from experiencing homelessness into secure housing situations.  

This program only accepts referrals from approved organizations and are booked through our online referral portal. Welcome Home hampers can be picked up at Community Kitchen Program of Calgary warehouse at 3751 21 Street NE on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays between 10:30 am – 12 pm and 1 – 2:30 pm.
