WHAT WE DOFood Hampers
creating a hunger-free community
Fighting hunger and its root cause
Eligible people may receive up to seven hampers in a 12-month period. The first three hampers may be received through self-referral, while the other four must be a referral from one of our agency partners.
Emergency Food hampers
Getting people the help they need
The Calgary Food Bank distributes more than 280 emergency food hampers every day. Our emergency triage system makes sure our clients, who come from all walks of life, get the help they need quickly.
We believe that good, nutritious food should not be out of reach for anyone. Our food hampers meet Canada’s Food Guide, they contain 28% perishables, 20% grains and 52% non-perishables
