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.

 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.

Host an Online Fundraiser 

Bring your fundraiser to the next level by having an online fundraising page. Share the link with your family, friends and coworkers, asking them to consider making a 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 to help feed YYC. Donations made online of $3 or more will receive a charitable tax receipt through our online giving platform Canada Helps. 

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

Host a Food Drive or Fundraiser

There is something rewarding about knowing that the food you donate will end up on someone’s table. By collecting food/funds you will help us provide essential items for our clients experiencing food insecurity.

Register your event and we can provide food drive and cash boxes, along with other resources to make your initiative a success.

Step 1: Register your FoOD OR fundraiser

By registering your fundraiser we can support your event, share your work and inspire others, and so we can say thank you! Register your event.

“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.”
