EVENT

MAYOR’S ANNUAL CHRISTMAS FOOD DRIVE

On November 25, Mayor Naheed Nenshi kicked off the Mayor’s Annual Christmas Food Drive. This year, our community partners helped us virtually kick off the campaign with 12 Days of Giving. Each day different community partners featured one of our most needed food items!

MAYOR’S ANNUAL CHRISTMAS FOOD DRIVE

​Joining together VIRTUALLY for a hunger-free Christmas

The holiday season will certainly look different this year, but that isn’t stopping businesses, students, and communities from joining together for a hunger-free Christmas. The Mayor’s Annual Christmas Food Drive is typically a month-long campaign of food drives and fundraising activities. But we won’t let 2020 get in the way of the fun and the spirit of the holidays!

Join us virtually for 12 Days of Giving, focusing on some of our most needed food items. Each day from November 25 to December 9, a different Mayor’s Food Drive community partner will highlight one of these wish list items to the tune of The 12 Days of Christmas on social media. We’ll be sharing the fun on our own social channels, so be sure to follow us to see everyone’s interpretation!

Our 12 Days of Giving is just the beginning. Our many partners and supporters in the community will be organizing safe ways to collect food and funds up until January 8, 2021.

“For 32 years, Calgarians have been coming together to help their neighbours at this important time of year. This year, it’s more important than ever, as many of our neighbours are struggling. 2020 has been a challenging year for many, but I know with the generosity of the people of this city, together we can make a difference. One of Calgary’s very best qualities, which we all share, is our ability to help our neighbours; and I hope that this event gives an opportunity for us all to showcase that giving spirit.”

Returning 2021

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have made the tough decision to cancel this year’s CANstruction Junior event.

The CANstruction Junior competition offers students the fun challenge of building something creative from the food they have collected during their holiday food drive. Schools across Calgary have participated in this competition since 2012 and we can’t wait to bring it back for future Mayor’s Annual Christmas Food Drives.
