(businesspress24) - CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/28/13 -- The Calgary Food Bank is meeting the needs of all who have been affected by the flooding, including those still evacuated, transitioning back home or who have been displaced from their residences. As a critical distribution hub, they are able to assist the city and Southern Alberta by sending warehouse reserves, collecting perishable and non-perishable items plus mobilizing partners and volunteers into the community.

In an effort to meet the needs of the community during this critical and unprecedented time, warehouse hours for receiving donations and distributing hampers to agencies have been extended:

They have also made the unusual move of providing on-the-ground support in various communities with one-day pop-up locations:

As residents return to their homes and begin the task of cleaning up, they may find that many of their items are spoiled. A comprehensive of much-needed items has been compiled and the Food Bank will support anyone affected by the floods with emergency food hampers.

The generosity of individuals and businesses, locally, provincially, nationally, even internationally, has been overwhelmingly generous. But the need will continue in the coming days and weeks. The Calgary Food Bank will continue to assess the needs on a daily, even hourly basis then mobilize to best meet the needs of the community.
