Winter report discussing covid impact, volunteer spotlight, what’s in our emergency food hampers, and the new community liaison team
Wishing a happy new year and information regarding the 2020 – 2021 annual report. Reflecting on the year and looking into the future.
A volatile combination of high housing costs, pandemic job losses, rising food costs and an anticipated further pull-back on government supports is creating a “perfect storm” that has Canada’s food banks bracing for a “tidal wave” of new clients in the months ahead. And our food bank is not an exception!
We were built on a foundation of faith, not as an expression of religion but on the sense of community. Even more true today, when the collective desire to help others continues as the need for food support touches more lives.
2020 was a year like no other in recent memory as the Covid-19 Pandemic touched every single person in our community in some way. Despite the many unknowns the pandemic presented in the early part of the year, we were able to continue to support the community because of the generosity of Calgarians.
