AboutWelcome to the Veterans Food Bank of Alberta. We exist for the sole purpose of helping our forgotten veterans in any way needed. Too long have the heroes and their families that laid everything on the line for us and in some cases, made the ultimate sacrifice, suffered in silence. IT’S TIME WE STAND UP FOR THEM!
Founder, Allan Reid, values community service and has volunteered hundreds of hours for many charities in and around Calgary, including the Magic of Christmas, Street Lights, and the Calgary Toyrun. Now, he’s overjoyed to be spearheading this new endeavor.
Food ServiceWe strive to restore dignity to all who use our service and assistance is not pre-defined. Clients are able to shop for themselves to ensure they receive exactly what they need and enough to cover 10-14 days of food for their situation.
