Immigrant Services Calgary has connected people experiencing food insecurity to the Calgary Food Bank. We met with Rebeca Andrada to learn.
As November is Financial Literacy Month, we met with Jodie Moffatt, Financial Empowerment Facilitator, to dig deeper into their Financial Empowerment Programs.
It is through the kind hearts of community members that the Calgary Food Bank can expand our reach for hamper distribution through Satellite Locations. Our location in Lincoln Park, is run by two lovely volunteers, Karen and Ward, who we spoke with about their experience with running a Satellite Location.
