A Week in Their Kitchen is a week long challenge that will see various members of Calgary’s media and public surviving on the contents of only an Emergency Food Hamper throughout Husky Help the Hungry week (May 31-June 6 2010).

Participants will be blogging about their experience, both with visiting the food bank, and cooking with the items in their hamper, to help give the public a sense of what it’s like to be in need.

    “Survive” on a hamper for a week? That’s quite lavish. The people who actually need and use the emergency hampers have to survive entire month on a hamper, if not longer.

      That’s very true for some of our clients, it’s one of the reasons why we also offer the names and phone numbers, as well as pamphlets, on other organizations and agencies that can help them out of their crisis situation.

      The majority of people who use the Calgary Food Bank are the working poor.
