Charity Challenge

Calgary Corporate Challenge provides fun, engaging team-building events throughout the year, highlighted by the annual Calgary Corporate Challenge September Games. The Charity Challenge component gives teams a series of opportunities to give and engage in meaningful ways so they can do good and be good (and also earn points in the standings). We are excited to be celebrating 20 years of being a Calgary Corporate Challenge Charity partner. Since 2005, more than $515,000 in food and funds has been raised by Calgary Corporate Challenge participants to help feed Calgary.

Donate Funds

Hunger is not experienced only by those experiencing homelessness in our city; it could be the family next door, the child who goes to school with your son or daughter, the person next to you on the bus going to work, classmates from college or university, or the person who serves you at your local business. These are our friends, family members and neighbors who face a life set back and need our help and compassion. 

The Calgary Food Bank is community owned; community supported. It takes community action to provide healthy and nutritious food, to help one family, one person at a time. In partnership with the food industry and companies like you, for every $1 received we can distribute $3.50 worth of food.  

Give what you can, to help us help your neighbors, your friends, your family members.

“It is hard to move forward when you are just trying to survive… you can’t find stability and don’t feel stability in your life… So having a stress removed – which is insecurity with food – helps me move forward instead of moving me back, everyday stuck in survival mode.” Calgary Food Bank Client
