Mayor's Annual Christmas Food Drive

​Joining Together for a Hunger-Free Christmas

Mayor Jyoti Gondek sorting food

On November 18 Mayor Gondek kicked off the 35th Annual Mayor’s Holiday Food Drive! 

The Mayor initiated the Councillor’s Challenge.  The challenge was between each of the 14 Councillor’s Wards to raise funds and food for the Calgary Food Bank. By bringing together all Councillors and their Ward we are amplifying our voices and presenting a united front to support the community.  

Food Drive & Fundraiser

Thinking of hosting an on-site food drive this year in conjunction with the Annual Mayor’s Food drive? Collecting food and funds is a great way to provide essential items for our clients experiencing food insecurity over the holiday season.

We have boxes for your food drive, cash boxes for your fundraiser and resources to help you promote the event with your community. Register your event with us so we know how to support you!

Donation boxes can be picked up or dropped off at our main location:
