The Community Liaison Team
This team deepens relationships with partner organizations and develop stronger ties with the community to reduce stress and get to the root causes of food insecurity.
What They Do
They meet one-to-one to learn what organizations in the community do and see how the Calgary Food Bank can help. They match community partners with the best Calgary Food Bank program to suit the needs of the organization and of the people they work with. Beyond that, the Community Liaison Team explores collaborations and initiatives focused on tackling root causes of poverty because no one organization can do it alone.
