ABOUT THE EVENT

Benefits Of Joining
THE CALGARY FOOD BANK
We chose to support The Calgary Food Bank because it is a local organization that provides a big uplift to their clients. In the past year, the Calgary Food Bank has donated 9,139,114 lbs of food, which is 9,786 meals Every Day for those in need.
Each year, YYCTech Gives members plan various fundraisers and events to raise food, funds and time for the Calgary Food Bank. The Spam Cup, is a friendly month-long competition, focusing on these three areas of need, to gain the most points to claim the Spam Cup title. It culminates with a food sorting competition (for extra points!) at the Food Bank's Warehouse with the CBC EyeOpener broadcasting live.
