Senior Picnic Basket Program

Over the past decade the Calgary Food Bank has seen a 100% increase in seniors seeking support.  As the cost of living increases, purchasing adequate amounts of quality nutritious food becomes a challenge to those on fixed incomes.  Did you know that 1 in 4 Calgary seniors reveal that it is difficult to afford the food they need?  Many seniors in our community are going hungry.


It wouldn't take much for our community to come together to invest in our seniors health and well being!  The Alexandra Centre Society is stepping up to help our area seniors in need.  Our Senior Picnic Basket Program aims to help alleviate hunger and provide resources within the community to lessen food insecurity issues. 


Every year in late spring or early summer we will be purchasing, packing up, and delivering picnic baskets full of nutritious food!


It only costs $75 to sponsor a healthy Picnic Basket for a local senior in need! A little bit goes a long way!  A big thank you to all who support this program and our local seniors!
