Donate Funds


For every $1 donated the Calgary Food Bank can distribute $3.50 worth of food

Help Feed YYC

The face of hunger is not only the homeless in our city; it could be the family next door. The child who sits next yours in school, the person next to you on the bus going to work, our classmates from college or university, or the person who serves you at your local business. These are our friends and neighbours who face a life set back and need our help and compassion.

The Calgary Food Bank is not a government or United Way funded organization. We are community owned, community supported. 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 $5 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.
