Planning your event

Spring is generally a time for door-to-door food drives, or bottle drives which raise much needed food and funds for the Food Bank. Due to the ever evolving COVID-19 situation we are asking the community to consider a virtual fundraiser where they ask their friends and family to make donations online. Consider setting up your virtual food drive today!

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are not delivering food drive boxes or cash boxes at this time. Thank you for your understanding as we revise our operations and protocols to keep our staff, volunteers and donors safe and healthy.

The Calgary Food Bank is community owned and community supported, meaning that 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. The possibilities are endless when it comes to holding your own event.

Step 3: Create a fundraising page

Bring your event, food drive or fundraiser to the next level by building your own Personal Fundraising Page. As the champion of your own page, you can run an online fundraising initiative by reaching out to friends, family and your online community.

  • Personal Pages to support an activity that you are participating in, to complement an event or milestone that you are celebrating, or simply to raise funds.
  • Tribute page In-Honour or In-Memory of a loved one.
“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 (there are) families with special dietary needs so you often need to buy stuff. So I decided to collect toonies. Every kid has a toonie laying around. I decided it would be cool to try to raise $200 and that seemed like a reasonable amount to aim for. The total raised was $397.70.”
