About Feed the Hungry

If Sunday dinner is a tradition in your home, or if you have fond memories of special Sunday dinners around the table with family, imagine if all of that was stripped away and Sunday was just another day of searching for food and shelter.


At Feed the Hungry, we offer a family-style, sit down dinner each Sunday in an atmosphere of community, warmth, dignity, safety and respect. We intentionally strive to re-create that environment many of us remember so fondly.


Many of our guests come to us after walking through harsh weather conditions. By participating in Coldest Night of the Year, we invite you to not only help us raise funds to operate our program, but also to experience a small taste of what it means to experience homelessness during Calgary's often brutally cold winter nights.


Walk with us on February 25, 2017. And remember, it's cold out there.


About KAIROS Calgary

KAIROS Calgary's Affordable Housing Working Group is committed to helping families at risk of or experiencing homelessness. This work involves volunteering with CUPS Calgary at affordable housing communities in Calgary and fundraising to pay off the mortgages of those communities through the A Place to Call Home campaign. This campaign is run in partnership with the Calgary Homeless Foundation.


KAIROS is currently fundraising through Coldest Night of the Year in 2018 for Bankview Apartments. This is a 26 unit building that provides permanent supported housing for families and individuals.


KAIROS Calgary brings together 10 Christian denominations and about 130 congregations in the largest ecumenical effort that we know of in Canada to help families at risk of or experiencing homelessness.
