The Community Kitchen Program of Calgary operates a self-empowering model to address the needs of marginalized Calgarians. The Community Kitchen Program of Calgary has continually evolved over the years to meet the changing needs of the city, in response to the deepening awareness and understanding of the complex issues of poverty and hunger. They teach participants how to prepare nutritious meals, budget their finances - making their income stretch by preparing cost effective, healthy meals, as well by providing a means to access nutritious foods.

The programs the Community Kitchen Program of Calgary has built help adults, children and families to eat healthier, at a lower cost, learning how to cut the grocery bills and most importantly how to keep these healthy habits throughout their lifetime. They are not just giving a "hand-out" but a "hand-up"!

"We want the Community Kitchen Program of Calgary to be a household name in which Calgarians think of when considering who to donate and support in this city. An Evening with Steve Forbes and Jeff Rubin is an opportunity to raise awareness for our organization and also an opportunity to raise funds and expand Community Kitchen Program of Calgary services to the one in ten Calgarians who are food deficient", stated Marilyn Gunn, CEO & Founder of the Community Kitchen Program of Calgary.
