CBC Food Bank Drive
Feeding the possibility of a Calgary without hunger
For 33 years, the CBC Calgary Food Bank Drive has brought the community together to raise food and funds for families and individuals in crisis. Throughout the month of December, companies and organizations hold a variety of events to support this annual campaign. With 48 events, including the CP Rail Holiday Train, holiday bake sales and concerts, there is something for everyone.
The campaign kicks-off with the limited edition sale of a specially roasted Fratello Coffee blend and collectible CBC Eyeopener mug. Closing out the campaign is CBC Calgary’s Blitz Day which in 2017 lifted the donation tally over the $1-million mark. Every year, the generosity of Calgarians helps ensure that no one goes hungry in the New Year.
If you want to get your organization involved in the campaign, please contact Lynn Tipper at 403-640-8813 or by email.
“As Calgarians, we are inspired by those who give to the CBC Calgary Food Bank Drive and thankful for the work the Calgary Food Bank does to strengthen our community.”
