Put the Boots to Hunger

Help Put the Boots to Hunger by making your Stampede event a fundraiser for the Calgary Food Bank! Whether you’re flipping flapjacks, tossing burgers on the grill or gathering for cold ones with family, friends, clients or co-workers, you are invited to help fight hunger.


When you register your event:

  • The Calgary Food Bank supplies the donation boxes for food.
  • The Calgary Food Bank supplies a QR code for ease of raising funds.
  • Calgary Food Bank volunteers are happy to support your event.


The Calgary Food Bank continues to see unprecedented demand for food as many in our community struggle to make ends meet during these difficult times. Inflation, coupled with high food costs as well as rent, utilities, and more, mean that many have to choose between keeping the lights on or feeding their families.


Ideas for fundraisers include:

  • Fill a Truck, the boss’s office, or another designated area with food.
  • Get your Spaghetti Western on by rounding up pasta and pasta sauce.
  • Go loco for Loonies and Toonies!
  • Wrangle up a raffle: the Calgary Food bank can assist with creating a virtual 50/50 fundraiser.
  • Spread the Love: ask everyone to donate peanut butter or nut butter.



Here are creative ways to make your event fun, memorable and successful. https://www.calgaryfoodbank.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/04/Host-your-own-event-ideas-2023-1.pdf
