The Calgary Food Bank guarantees certain items in every Emergency Food Hamper we distribute. Our Hampers reflect the nutritional guidelines of Canada’s Food Guide and contain one week of food for each person.
When we receive insufficient amounts of our guaranteed items through donations, we purchase them, to ensure the nutritional quality of our Hampers. The average cost of a Hamper for a family of four is $120.
Please consider including the some of the following items in your donation:
Processed cheese spread
Canned beans in tomato sauce
Pasta or rice (900g)
Fruit juice (1L)
Baby formula with iron
Baby food (jars)
Cereal or pancake mix
Macaroni & cheese
