Calgary Food Bank: Any Time's a Good Time for Chili - Especially If it Helps Put the Boots to Hunger!

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - July 12, 2012) - Got a hankerin' for a good bowl of chili? Well mosey on down to the Calgary Farmers' Market for a little taste testin' and help us Put the Boots to Hunger in support of the Calgary Food Bank.

The 4th annual Calgary Farmers' Market Chili Cook-Off is a relatively new addition to the events under the Put the Boots to Hunger tarp, so to speak! Championed by Calgary law firm Burnet, Duckworth & Palmer (BD&P), Put the Boots to Hunger aims to raise $500,000 in food and funds for the Calgary Food Bank, just during the week of Stampede.

Now's your chance to help us Put the Boots to Hunger, and it's a simple as a sample!

Drop by the Calgary Farmers' Market this weekend and try each of the chilis on offer. For a small donation to the Food Bank, you will enjoy samples of the not-so-secret chili recipes of five Market vendors, including a gluten-free version and a vegetarian option. All a Taster has to do is vote for their favourite. The winner, announced mid-afternoon on the 15th, ropes the coveted Golden Spatula. Trust us when we say, this is not to be missed!

"We're so excited for the chili cook-off this year," says Amanda Bonner, Director of Marketing and Events for the Calgary Farmers' Market. "We have 5 competitors who are eager to win the Golden Spatula while helping support the Calgary Food Bank and the Put the Boots to Hunger campaign. This is always a great event - we invite all chili fans to come on down and try some of the best chili in the city for a great cause."

Where: Calgary Farmers' Market 510 77 Av SE

When: July 14 & 15 9am-3pm, or until the chili runs out!

Who: Missing Link Extraordinary Sausage, Miss P's Gluten Free, The Stock N Sauce Co., Simple Simon Pies, and reigning champion Big D's Smokehouse

What: Chili Cook-Off fundraiser for the Calgary Food Bank

Will last year's Golden Spatula winner, Big D's Smokehouse, woo your tastebuds? Or will another contender take the lead? You be the judge and help us Put the Boots to Hunger!
