Host a fundraiser
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:
- 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.
- 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.
