“I’ve got some financial issues and a coordinator at the student association where I volunteer recommended to go to the Calgary Food Bank. The agent I talked to was extremely tolerant and understanding to my situation and helped me in getting the hamper. That support helped me to prepare for winter. I was able to buy a new pair of gloves and winter jacket.”
