The Calgary Food Bank in collaboration with the Calgary Co-op launched a food rescue program and it is wildly successful.
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.
We’ve gotten to know the Victory Team well through their use of the Food Link and Fresh Tote Food Rescue Program, and, with so much going on for Victory Outreach, we thought it would be a good time to sit down with Operations Director Matthew Bannerman to find out more!
The Calgary Food Bank works in collaboration with Momentum by both referring people using the food bank to Momentum’s programs and working alongside Momentum to deliver presentations on food insecurity, food access and nutrition to program participants. Together we’re exploring new opportunities and testing new ideas and we’re excited to see what comes next in our partnership.
