Planning your event

We are community owned and community supported, meaning all of our donations come directly from generous community members like YOU! Hosting your own fundraiser is a great way to help support the community and feed YYC.

October to December are our busiest fundraising months of the year; they help to set us up for the winter to ensure that we have the food and funds we need to support Calgarians. We know that things are looking a bit different this year and we have revised our delivery and pick-up models to account for COVID safety measures. Our goal is to ensure the safety of you, the community, our volunteers and staff.

Here are some of the things you can expect when hosting an event for the Food Bank this year:

  1. Calgary Food Bank Drivers will not be entering buildings or taking elevators to multiple floors. We ask that someone meet us with the donations either in the lobby or loading dock areas.
  2. We require five business days to process your request for a delivery or pickup. If you need boxes sooner, you’re welcome to visit our warehouse, Door 3.

Step 1: Register your fundraiser

Whether you are hosting a food drive to collect food donations from friends, family, coworkers or clients; or hosting an online fundraiser to help feed YYC, make sure you register your event. By registering your fundraiser we can support your event, share your work and inspire others, and so we can say thank you!

Step 3: Create an online fundraising page

Bring your event, food drive or fundraiser to the next level by having an online fundraising page. Share the think with your family, friends and coworkers, asking them to consider making an online donation.

Online fundraising pages are great to support an activity that you are participating in, complement an event or milestone that you are celebrating, or simply to raise funds in support of the Food Bank.

Register your event and one of our team members will send you your unique link.

“I knew I could make a difference by helping the food bank. I talked to my mom about it and did some research. I learned that the food bank can get more food with money than I can buying the food myself. I know families with special dietary needs so you often need to buy stuff. I decided to collect toonies. Every kid has a toonie laying around. I decided it would be cool to try to raise $200, that seemed like a reasonable amount to aim for. The total raised was $397.70.”
