Calgary Food Bank Update
Evangel Depot Closing
Tuesday, May 7, 2019
For more than 8 years we have distributed 1543 Emergency Food Hampers, affecting 3,660 lives through the Evangel Calgary depot, located in the Hope Mission building. Once a week, families and individuals came to this SE location to meet the volunteers who helped them collect 7- 10 days worth of food.
Due to recent changes in staffing requirements for programming at Hope Mission, we have made the difficult decision to close this satellite location effective May 30, 2019. We are currently investigating opportunities in other venues and will work with Calgary Food Bank clients to redirect them to other nearby options such as Eastside Victory Outreach which is also located in the community of Forest Lawn, and Village Square Leisure Centre, Carter Place, and Don Hartman Sportsplex, all within 10km of Hope Mission.
We have had a wonderful partnership with Hope Mission and we will continue to work together to meet the needs of their community.
Should you have any questions, comments or depot ideas, please contact Marla Kailly.
