Calgary Food Bank

Back by popular demand, we are pleased to announce we are once again working with the Calgary Food Bank this year as our charity component.


The Culinary Race team loves to support local businesses and charity and the participants from last year’s race spoke and we listened!

The Calgary Food Bank was established in 1983 and is a charitable organization dedicated to gathering and distributing quality emergency food to those in need.

Eligible people may receive up to seven emergency hampers in a twelve month period with the first three through self referral and the last four through agency partners. This past year the Calgary Food Bank has assisted 141,270 Calgarians.

The Calgary Food Bank will be a bonus clue released between April 22 and June 1 for registered participants.. Please ensure you check your emails regularly!
