MAYOR’S ANNUAL CHRISTMAS FOOD DRIVE

​Joining Together VIRTUALLY for a Hunger-Free Christmas

We were thrilled to kick off this year’s Food Drive by welcoming our new Mayor Jyoti Gondek to the food bank for a tour. Mayor Gondek learned about our greatest needs during the 2021 holiday season. She discovered that each week, to serve those facing food insecurity, we require 900 volunteers to pick-up donations, sort food, build hampers, answer client calls, and distribute healthy and nutritious food. The year we asked Calgarians for the much-needed gift of time.

Throughout the month of December over 1200 volunteers served nearly 11 thousand hours to help ensure that everyone in our community had access to quality nutritious food. Thank you, Calgary! We truly cannot do what we do without you. At the Calgary Food Bank, we rely on volunteers every day to help us work towards our vision of a hunger-free community. If you were not able to help out over the holidays but have time now, please consider signing up to volunteer at our warehouse in one of the 40 roles we have available.

Another new initiative that we launched this year was our “Loonies for Lunches” campaign. With the support of students who attend private schools, charter schools as well as students from the Calgary Board of Education and the Calgary Catholic School District we raised $40,724! These funds will support students who are experiencing extreme hunger through our Weekends and More Program.

Thank you, Calgary, for your continued support of the Calgary Food Bank and the Mayors Annual Christmas Food Drive.
