Mayor's Food Drive 12 Days of Giving
MAYOR’S ANNUAL CHRISTMAS FOOD DRIVE

​Joining together VIRTUALLY for a hunger-free Christmas

The holiday season looked a little different last year, but that didn’t stop businesses, students, and communities from joining together for a hunger-free Christmas. Calgarians came together to show they had the giving spirit, The Mayor’s Annual Christmas Food Drive raised $467,984 in food and funds for Calgarians in need of food support this winter.

The campaign kicked-off with the 12 Days of Giving. Each day, a different Mayor’s Food Drive community partner highlighted one of our wish list items. The 12 Days of Giving was just the beginning, partners and supporters were in the community organizing safe ways to collect food and funds during the holiday season. Thank you YYC!

“For 32 years, Calgarians have been coming together to help their neighbours at this important time of year. This year, it’s more important than ever, as many of our neighbours are struggling. 2020 has been a challenging year for many, but I know with the generosity of the people of this city, together we can make a difference. One of Calgary’s very best qualities, which we all share, is our ability to help our neighbours; and I hope that this event gives an opportunity for us all to showcase that giving spirit.”
Mayor Nenshi
Because of you

Thank You YYC

Returning 2021

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have made the tough decision to cancel this year’s CANstruction Junior event.

The CANstruction Junior competition offers students the fun challenge of building something creative from the food they have collected during their holiday food drive. Schools across Calgary have participated in this competition since 2012 and we can’t wait to bring it back for future Mayor’s Annual Christmas Food Drives.
