Our Community Programs

We can create a hunger-free community when we work together to address the root causes of food insecurity.

The Calgary Food Bank offers a variety of programs and services to partners that are working on root causes of food insecurity. To help navigate our programs and find the best match(es) for your organization, we invite you to connect with our Community Liaison Team to learn how we can work together to help your clients. We want to find the best fit that will help you meet the needs of your clients.

Community Liaison team

Our Community Liaison Team provides support, information and connection to our partners who are working on root causes of hunger.

Emergency Food Hampers

The Emergency Food Hamper Program provides seven to 10 days of food to families and individuals that are struggling to make ends meet.

Hampers for the Homeless

The Hampers for the Homeless Program provides ready to eat, shelf-stable food to those experiencing homelessness.

Weekends and More

The Weekends and More Program provides two days of nutritious meals and snacks to chronically hungry students.

Food Link

The Food Link Program provides food and supplies to qualified organizations so they can focus their resources on program delivery.

Food Share

The Food Share Program is available for registered food banks to access donated food outside of their regular stream.

Food Grants

Food Grants are available for your organization’s one-time or short-term event or occasion.

Purchasing Power

The Purchasing Power Program provides organizations an opportunity to buy bulk food at discounted prices.

Welcome Home

The Welcome Home Program provides hampers containing pantry staples, cleaning and hygiene items to those transitioning into housing after experiencing homelessness.

“If we had to source food, we would have to relinquish other important supports. If not for the 2,700 pounds of food we receive for our Youth Culinary Arts program, we would be limited in hiring counsellors who provide support alongside these young people as they train for employment. The program and our staff are critical in helping to build our client’s confidence, work ethic, job and life skills – all with the intent of helping them find healthy independent living.”
