Join the Big Social!
It’s back and better than ever! The Big Social is gearing up for its second year as the national fundraising campaign benefitting The Alex Community Food Centre and food security organizations across Canada.
From October 9 to 25, thousands of people in Calgary and across the country will connect, in-person or online, to share food and raise money for healthy food programs and services that support people living on low incomes.
It’s easy to join!
In Calgary, funds raised will go directly to programs at the The Alex Community Food Centre that support people to eat well, cook healthy, connect with their community and take action on the issues that affect their lives.
About The Alex Community Food Centre
The Alex Community Food Centre (CFC) is a welcoming place for people to come together to grow, cook, share and advocate for good food for all. The CFC provides people with access to high-quality food in a dignified setting through healthy meals and an affordable produce market. People learn cooking and gardening skills, and kids get their hands dirty in the garden and kitchen in ways that expand their tastebuds and help them make healthier food choices. Community members find their voices on the issues that matter to them, and people find friends and support. CFCs offer multifaceted, integrated and responsive programming in a shared space where food builds health, hope, skills and community..
Your support is needed more than ever! So far during the pandemic, we have provided over 25,000 healthy meals and over $100,000 in gift cards to support basic needs. Learn more at www.thealexcfc.ca
