2018 MEMBER EVENTS

Spam Cup is our annual Volunteer group event held in December at the Calgary Food Bank. 

Tech companies send a team to participate in a friendly food sorting competition in the warehouse of the Calgary Food Bank with the CBC broadcasting live from the event. 

 

The team that sorts the most food: by weight, combined with team spirit points, and Ringer points  (Olympic Athletes, Mascots, Pipe Bands to distract the other teams?) during their designated heat takes home the coveted Spam Cup Trophy...and bragging rights!

You are invited to: IHS Markit Canstruction 2016

We would like to invite you to join us in supporting the Calgary Food Bank. IHS Markit has been running our own Canstruction Competition for the past 6 years and this year we are branching out and asking for more companies to join us.  This has always been a lot of fun to do and for a great cause.

 

What better year to participate and join in the fun, than when there is a theme:  Fairy Tales.   

We all know the food bank can certainly use one this year with need up over 20% from last year. Can your team bring their fairy tale to live using CANS?
