Kale Barr shares his story and the impact using the Food Bank has had in his life. Colleen talks about the value of volunteering, find out more about our partnership with local catering companies, and a special message from our CEO.
To mark National Volunteer Week, we had some one-on-one chats with a few of the people who give back during these difficult times so fellow Calgarians can get the food support they need.
Let’s have a heart-to-heart conversation about what’s really making us happy as we mark another month enduring the Coronavirus Pandemic. In “normal” years the cold winter months have us turning inside and inward but this past year; seclusion has taken on a whole new meaning.
2020 was a year like no other in recent memory as the Covid-19 Pandemic touched every single person in our community in some way. Despite the many unknowns the pandemic presented in the early part of the year, we were able to continue to support the community because of the generosity of Calgarians.
As 2020 wound down, many of us felt it was all we could do to just hunker down and “get it over with,” but for so many kind and thoughtful people in our city, the opposite was true. The very best of who we are as a community shone brighter than ever this holiday season.
