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. Only 0.4% of our funding comes from government and we are not a United Way funded organization. It takes community action to provide healthy and nutritious food support, to help one family, one person at a time. 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.
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.
