Calgary Food Bank: Beans for Beans Is Back for 3rd Annual Food Drive

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Oct. 14, 2009) - The local community has been good to Bumpy's and the Cafe wants to give back to Calgary. On Friday, October 16th the third annual "Beans for Beans" Bumpy's Café drive will be collecting for the Calgary Food Bank. The Bumpy's family, along with their patrons will feed many hungry Calgarians in need through this event.

Bumpy's Café invites one and all to take a break and come visit this energetic atmosphere cafe during the food drive, or make a donation now online at www.calgaryfoodbank.com, to help give back and achieve this year's goal.

On the day of the event, those who drop off a food or cash donation will receive a 12 oz freshly brewed gourmet coffee. Angela Knight and John Gilchrest from CBC's Eyeopener will also be broadcasting live from the cafe all morning.

Last year, $8,500 in foods and funds were raised by this drive for the Calgary Food Bank. This year, with a 40% increase in Food Bank demand since September 2008, the goal has been raised to $15,000 in foods and funds.

The media is invited to Bumpy's Café for some fun photo opportunities both behind and in front of these caring coffee makers at 1040 8th Street SW on Friday, October 16th between 7am and 11am.
