The Community Kitchen Program of Calgary (CKPC) is an organization that we supported financially in collaboration with the Rotary Clubs of Calgary Sarcee, Stampede Park and West.  Their motto is 'reducing hunger today, educating for tomorrow'. They undertake their mission of 'Working to reduce hunger by promoting healthy food choices and enabling the community to educate, equip and feed themselves.' through several programs, including:

  • Good Food Box -  allows community members to purchase fresh fruits and vegetables at a very low cost. As an example, the $35 box that provides 40-45lbs of produce would cost up to $80 to buy in retail. It is a 'hand-up' vs.' hand-out' program programthat offers sustainable access to nutritious food to ensure that no one has to go hungry.
  • Welcome Home - to help those coming out of transitional housing and homelessness. Contents of each hamper vary depending on the size of the family. The Calgary Food Bank takes treferrals from many agencies and provides the requests and the food items for these hampesr to Community Kitchen to assemble for agency pick-up.

To allow us to volunteer more regularily and have more variety in tasks and shifts we are working with Rotary Clubs of Calgary West, Centennial, East, Fish Creek, Millenium, Stampede Park. As a result we will require only 3 volunteers for each shift.

During this shift from 5:00 -8:00 p.m.: (Often done within 2.5 hours) we will prepare and package produce that another group of volunteers will use to assemble Good Food boxes the following day.


All volunteers will be socially distanced throughout the shift, and asked to wear a mask. If you wish to participate and do not have a mask, they will provide one. Volunteers will be provided with gloves and a hand-wash station and sanitizer are readily available for proper hand hygeine.
