Meet The Community Liaison Team

Laura Harrison and Michelle Vetland’s Food Bank journeys started within the Emergency Food Hamper Program where they spoke with many courageous individuals facing food insecurity due to challenges with mental health, employment, cost of childcare, and so much more. In their roles, they are eager to deepen relationships with partner organizations and develop stronger ties with the community to reduce stress and get to the root causes of food insecurity.

 

What We Do

We meet one-to-one to learn what you do and see how we can help. We will match you with the best Calgary Food Bank program to suit the needs of your organization and of the people you work with. Beyond that, we explore collaborations and initiatives focused on tackling root causes of poverty because no one organization can do it alone.

We have introduced a new team of Resource Volunteers to improve awareness of community organizations for the people that we serve! These volunteers will use a questionnaire that is also available on our website to understand someone’s situation and find the best community organizations to support them. The new questionnaire will allow us to be more intentional about the referrals we provide.
