The Calgary Poppy Fund’s project – the Veteran’s Food Bank (the “VFB”) gives out over 1,000 food hampers per year.  The VFB relies on the generosity of Calgarians – both households and corporations – to donate funds and food. Their ongoing objective is to be able to ensure that every veteran in need who comes to them will be guaranteed food hampers and food vouchers.

Nearly 140,000 people in Calgary live in poverty.

  • Lone parent families have, by far, the lowest incomes of all family types. 80% of lone parent families are headed by women.
  • In Calgary, 21% of female-headed, lone-parent families in Calgary are low-income.
  • 16% of Calgary children – over 38,000 – live in low-income households.

As well, poverty affects the whole community through increased social, health and education costs as well as fewer people supporting the local economy.
