What's happening at the Calgary Food Bank? 

Hello volunteers! 
Have we reminded you lately that we can't do what we do without you? Thank you, thank you, thank you.

A few reminders: 

  • We are under construction! If you see the shelves in our warehouse looking bare, not to worry. 
  • If you are headed away on vacation, please let us know as far in advance as possible so that we can fill your very valuable shift. 
  • We will be closed on Monday, August 3rd for the holiday. All volunteer shifts are canceled for this day. 
We have fewer special events going on right now than we do during stampede, but we do have a couple that we would really appreciate some help with - take a look below!
It's weeding season at our community gardens! Check out gardening opportunities in this email if you're interested in some thriving outdoor volunteer opportunities!
