About the Calgary Food Bank

Food Bank

The Calgary Food Bank is an emergency food distribution hub. The Calgary Food bank gathers and distributes quality emergency food to individual Calgarians and the agencies that serve them.


Children's Milk Program

Amble with Angus specifically supports The Children’s Milk Program at the Calgary Food Bank which enhances the nutritious food choices of women and children in low-income families that have limited, inadequate or insecure access to sufficient, nutritious, personally acceptable food, to meet the daily needs of an active and healthy life. Milk and baby formula is accessed through the Home Delivery Program and/or the Agency Program.


129,948 families and individuals from ALL neighbourhoods and ALL quadrants of our city used the Food Bank last year, and the Children’s Milk Program delivered 62200 litres of milk.

Meet Angus Cowan

Despite the winter weather, Calgarians like you continue to respond with tremendous and unprecedented generosity to ease the hardships of others in our community. In 2017, we again had hundreds of participants and volunteers that ensured our event was fun, safe and successful. The 2017 Amble generated $42,914 in donations to the Children’s Milk Program.

We are inspired each year as local students continue to energize the Amble. We always hope that our Amblers leave thinking about how they can volunteer in their community, encourage others to volunteer or even think about starting their own event. It’s easier than you may think.

Thank you again to all that have supported and participated in our fun runs. We hope to see you at the starting line in 2018!
