A Surprisingly Easy Way to Give!

A Surprisingly Easy Way to Give!

Tis the season of giving, and many people are considering donating to their favourite charity. In this month’s blog, we want to focus on a method of donating that you may not be familiar with, and it’s actually a pretty straightforward, simple process for the donor – the gifting of securities.

Fall 2021

Joel Perry spent 38 years in the insurance business before exchanging his briefcase for keys to one of our 5-ton trucks. ‘Do what you love, and you won’t work a day in your life’ are words Joel lives by every time he comes to work at the Calgary Food Bank to collect food for fellow Calgarians who are experiencing food insecurity.

Celebrating our Grocery Heroes

Celebrating our Grocery Heroes

Today is Grocery Hero Day! We are extremely proud and incredibly grateful of the connection with our more than 100 grocery store partners, including Sobeys, Safeway, Save On Foods, Calgary Co-op, Superstore, No Frills, Costco and Walmart. It is a great honour to work with so many dedicated employees that understand the importance of giving back.

Rounding up, does it really help?

Rounding up, does it really help?

Have you ever been asked to make a donation through the till when shopping at your local grocery store? Or been asked to ‘round up’ your bill? If so, I’m sure you’ve also asked yourself, I wonder how the charity receives that money and the impact that your $2, $5 or $10 donation makes.

In the spirit of reconciliation, the Calgary Food Bank acknowledges that we live, work and play on the traditional territories of the Blackfoot Confederacy (Siksika, Kainai, Piikani), the Tsuut’ina, the Îyâxe Nakoda Nations, the Métis Nation (Region 3), and all people who make their homes in the Treaty 7 region of Southern Alberta.
