Volunteer Opportunities in Calgary
With the new year we look to all the things we are grateful for, and all the things we want to accomplish. It’s important to also look at the things we can do for others, and how we can give back to our communities! We’ve outlined some organizations in Calgary we believe are doing amazing work that you can get involved with in 2023!
The Calgary Food Bank
Food insecurity is something no one should have to feel. The Calgary Food Bank works to realize their vision of hunger-free communities and is the first line of emergency support for families and individuals facing crisis.

Brown Bagging for Calgary’s Kids
BB4CK believes no child should ever go hungry. They believe kids who have consistent access to nutritious food grow stronger brains and stronger bodies. They’re able to make friends, attend school consistently and to focus on learning instead of on a grumbling stomach. Their mission is to Connect and inspire people to take meaningful action to feed and care for kids
