Depots are an integral part of serving our clients. The Calgary Food Bank is client-centered and that means that we need to listen to our clients’ needs. Accessibility is one big part of this, and we know that if we can make emergency hampers more accessible without compromising quality and size, we are doing right by our clients. Since we have deepened our focus to this aspect of food distribution, we have seen a 50% increase in depot traffic. Duties include, organizing the food hampers (by adding perishables to each hamper), and Distributing food hampers to clients as they come in for pick up, checking client identification and calling clients to remind them of their pick up. Lifting involved (food hampers) up to 40 pounds. The depot is open on Wednesdays from 9 - 12 noon. The volunteers help unload the truck and organize the hampers from 9 - 10:30 and clients start to arrive at 10:30 for hamper pick up.
