Help Feed Calgary

Over the last couple of years the Calgary Food Bank has seen unprecedented demand. 30% of those needing food support are working; they list employment as their major source of income, but their paychecks just aren’t stretching. With the rising cost of living, more and more people are struggling to make ends meet, the community’s help is needed now more than ever. 

The Calgary Food Bank is truly by community, for community. In partnership with the food industry and people like you, for every $1 received, we can distribute $3.50 worth of food. We invite you to help by contributing online, by phone, mail, or in person. All donations over $25 made by phone, mail, or in person will receive a tax receipt.

If you are donating funds from a raffle, lottery or 50/50, or if the donation has been collected from other people, please do not use the online donation link, but rather, contact our Community Engagement Team at 403-253-2059 Option 3 or by email.

Please note, we use Canada Helps to facilitate our online donations. Once your donation is made you will automatically receive a receipt to your email from Canada Helps.
