Help out this Halloween

By Campus Food Bank Team

Editor, the Gauntlet,

The Campus Food Bank needs your help with our 9th annual Halloween Food Drive!

Did you know:

• Last year the Campus Food Bank put together 250 hampers, which helped 619 people, including 251 children!

• The CFB’s food supply comes solely from donations!

• The CFB obtains most of its donations through food drives such as the Halloween Food Drive!

• Last year 102 volunteers participated in this event!

• Last year we received almost 2,000 lbs of food!

We need volunteers to help canvass the neighborhoods of Varsity, Montgomery and University Heights for food donations for the CFB and Calgary Interfaith Food Bank on Halloween night, Sun., Oct. 31 between 5-7 p.m.

This year we are competing with University of Alberta Campus Food Bank to see who can collect the most donations!


• The volunteer registration will be taking place on Thu., Oct. 29 from 3-5 p.m. and on Friday from 2-4 p.m. in front of Volunteer Services office MSC 225.

• During the registration, you will obtain essential materials like area maps and nametags needed for the event.

• Hot chocolate and donuts will be provided for volunteers dropping off the donations.

• Awesome prizes for best costumes!

We hope to see you all there and thanks a lot for your help!
