How You Can Help

How You Can Help Feed Calgary

The Calgary Food Bank is community owned and community supported, meaning that all of our donations come directly from generous community members like YOU! In such uncertain times it can help to reach out to your neighbours, get together through safe physical distancing and support those facing food insecurity.

Donate Funds

Make a donation from the comfort of your own home. Monetary donations ensure that we can purchase essential food items to ensure that every food hamper has enough good nutritious food for the entire family.

We invite you to help by contributing online, by phone, mail or in person.

Donate Food

We accept donations of perishable and non-perishable food items as well as other food items such as baby and unopened pet food. Find out how you donate food.

Consider buying an extra item or two next time you are at the grocery store and leaving in the front of store bin. We rely heavily on these donations.

host a virtual food drive

Register with our team to set up an online food drive (fundraising page) or host a food drive. Once set up you can share the link with your friends and family to encourage them to make a donation..


Our volunteers are needed now more than ever. With physical distancing measure put in place to ensure continued safety the volunteers can sign up for one, three-hour shift per week.


We will never call and ask for donations. If you have received a call like this and gave out personal information, please call us at 403-253-2059 or the Calgary Police at 403-266-1234.
