Human Services
Organization Description: 

Established in 1982, the Calgary Food Bank is a charitable, non-profit organization dedicated to gathering and distributing quality emergency food to those in need. The majority of people we assist are working-poor Calgarians struggling to make ends meet. The Calgary Food Bank is not a government or United Way agency. We rely solely on the generous support of our community.

Because of countless thoughtful donations:

  • 132,469 people were able to access emergency food during 2014
  • The Calgary Food Bank could provide food to 110 local agencies such as the Drop-In Centre through the JP Morgan Food Link program
  • 486,080 meals and snacks were provided in one month to our agency partners
  • The Calgary Food Bank was able to send food to 63 food banks across Canada during emergencies and times of crisis
