We need to understand who we serve and why they need support. As Calgary’s main charitable food hub, and as part of our mission to fight hunger and its root cause, we collect and analyze extensive data so we can effectively address hunger in our community. Check back to this page to see what new research we have to share and its impact.

Covid-19 Impact Report

COVID-19 Impact on the Calgary Food Bank

COVID-19 Impact on the Calgary Food Bank

We have released a report outlining our experience with COVID-19 across five key areas: Operations, Partner Organizations, Fund Development, Volunteers, and Clients. As an emergency response organization, we are the first to observe the impact of crises in our community and continue to observe it long after the world moves on. Holding this position is a responsibility we take extremely seriously. We collect and analyze extensive quantitative and qualitative data and continued this practice throughout COVID-19. We believe we owe it to our community to share what we have observed with the intention of informing future pandemic response planning and contributing to a better understanding of the food insecurity landscape in times of crisis and beyond. This report is our first step towards making local food insecurity data more accessible.
