Time, Food and Funds – A Gift From Calgarians

Time, Food and Funds – A Gift From Calgarians

Calgary may be a city of over a million, but the heart of this city remains small town and community focused. When times are tough, Calgarians rally and come together to help their neighbours in need. And this holiday season, individuals, families and businesses came together in a big way to make sure that the holidays were happy for everyone. Whether it’s a tin, a truckload, a monetary donation or an hour of time, Calgarians gave with their hearts.

Food Or Funds

Food Or Funds

People often ask if it is better to give money or food. We say both. We could not possibly afford to purchase the amount of food we need in the course of a year, and we need funds to ensure we keep our doors open.

In the spirit of reconciliation, the Calgary Food Bank acknowledges that we live, work and play on the traditional territories of the Blackfoot Confederacy (Siksika, Kainai, Piikani), the Tsuut’ina, the Îyâxe Nakoda Nations, the Métis Nation (Region 3), and all people who make their homes in the Treaty 7 region of Southern Alberta.
