CALGARY, AB--(Marketwired - June 06, 2017) - A list of Calgary Food Bank events and community food drives for the month of June.

Purolator Tackle Hunger Week
Monday, June 5 to Friday, June 9
Every year, during the first week in June, more than 10,000 Purolator employees, customers, and partners join Canadians from coast to coast to raise awareness about hunger in Canada. They collect food and funds for food banks across Canada as part of Purolator Tackle Hunger (PTH) Week. All of the donations raised during PTH Week stay in the community where they were raised and benefit the local food bank. Last year, PTH Week raised over $32,000 in food and funds for the Calgary Food Bank.

136 2 Street SW
MINAS is donating $1 for each sale of their YYC Beer Week menu to the Calgary Food Bank. Head on down to the MINAS Brazilian Steakhouse for some delicious food and help MINAS support the Food Bank.

Let's Eat
