Help Tippet-Richardson Fight Hunger!

Tippet-Richardson is holding a Move For Hunger Fundraiser throughout 2022.  The Covid-19 pandemic has caused an unprecedented need for food support, throughout Canada and the US.  Your support will directly impact the number of people that Move for Hunger are able to feed in the years ahead. 96% of every donation goes directly towards their hunger relief and food waste reduction programs.

We at T-R are making a huge push, towards a goal of $30,000, to help put meals on tables.  Please pitch in with us, in the fight against food poverty, by donating here!

Food Drive 2021

Calgary Food Drive 2021 for Move for Hunger

Thanks to our team for volunteering at the Calgary Food Drive 2021, to help fight hunger last weekend! On Saturday, 10th July, Calgary GM Brenda Bressler and her team (Ben Thorgeirson and Jori Enberg) volunteered to Fill-A-Truck at the Food Drive 2021 outside Save-On Foods at 3915 51st Street SW, Calgary. Together, they collected 480 lbs of food (the equivalent of 400 meals!) plus a cheque for $100, from generous donors. I think we can all agree that they earned their Hunger Fighting Hero Award. We’d also like to give a shout out to the Manager and Staff at Save-On Foods, Brianne Breugom and the Food Bank rep Avaleen Streeton, who came out and helped set up the site with us.
