We use plastic grocery bags when we are filling a food order...so if you would like to donate yours we'll put them to  very good use!

We are now taking names for anyone in need of a Christmas Hamper.

or call 403-612-1291 to register.

This project is a big endeavour & we appreciate all the volunteers & help we can get. Could you help organize & fill hampers on Dec. 16 or 17th?  Could you help on pick-up day Dec. 18th or clean-up day on Dec 19th? Please call 403-612-1291.

Last year we put together 80 hampers which fed 147 adults

#ZeroHunger world
THE GLOBAL FOODBANKING NETWORK:

Let us never forget the world produces enough food to feed the entire global population.  One third of food is wasted or lost which equates to 1.6 BILLION tons of food annually -  it is a grim reality. 

Good nutrition is critical to people's health & economic development & especially vital for children.

A few sad facts:
1 in 9 people worldwide do not get enough food to lead a healthy active life
 
2 billion people suffer from hidden hunger or lack in basic micronutrients

149 million children under 5 years are stunted or experience impaired growth
