our community programs and services
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.
Throughout the Weekends And More program review, we have been working with Céileann Regan and Charity Alcocer, two Public Health Dietitians to better understand food insecurity among students and their families, and the strengths and challenges associated with school backpack programs.
