Calgary Food Bank: Students Playing With Their Food Are Making a Difference

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - May 14, 2013) - Calgary Food Bank

For the 5th straight year, the students at Western Canada High School competing with each other in an effort to raise food and funds for the Calgary Food Bank.

A coveted activity, only the five teams who raised the most funds are allowed to participate in the fun and friendly food sculpture competition. An exciting addition to this year's judging process will be Mayor Naheed Nenshi, who will be on-hand to pronounce the 2013 winners.

Wednesday, May 15
9AM to 12PM
Western Canada High School (641 17 Ave SE)

Each team is supplied with the same amount and type of food items, all of which are on the Calgary Food Bank's most needed items list. Teams design and build the most innovative structure from these non-perishable food items, which are then judged, dismantled and donated.

The activity is part of Husky Help the Hungry Week (May 13-17) and a guest panel of judges from Husky Energy will be on hand.

Western Canada High School is Husky Energy's educational partner and teams up with the Company for Husky Help the Hungry Week.

Thirty years ago Calgary changed the way emergency food was provided to people in need.

Today, the Calgary Food Bank continues this spirit of collaboration by working with more than 100 local agencies to support people through difficult times.

Together, we work to nourish healthy communities and you, too, can be part of the change.
