What started out as a fun little office activity for BBB staff in 2015, turned into a massive community-building charitable effort in 2016 as hundreds of people came together to support food banks in Calgary, Okotoks, Airdrie and Lethbridge. 

The Accredited Businesses Care 2016 Food Drive was, actually, sort of a surprise. What was intended as an invitation to donate a prize or two to encourage food donations became an incredible show of kindness and support from our Accredited Businesses. 

  • We raised more than 2,500 lbs of food for the Calgary, Airdrie, Okotoks and Lethbridge Food Banks.
  • Nearly 200 individuals donated at eight+ locations throughout southern Alberta.  
  • Thirty donors won prizes from 21 sponsors including a trip for two anywhere Westjet flies in North America, an Apple Watch and many more
