Because the need is growing, the Calgary Inter-Faith Food Bank holds the Herringer Kiss Gallery’s Art for Food Show and Sale, from July 23 to August 20, 2011. For the duration of the exhibition, the Gallery will donate funds to the Calgary Foodbank towards purchase of emergency food hampers for needly families. Among the artists participating is photographer David Burdeny, Brasta Bonifacho and Elizabeth Barnes. For each $ 1,000 of art sold, a familly of four will be supplied with the required food necessities for one entire week. The Calgary Food Bank distributed $20.5 million worth of quality emergency food with $4.1 million of funds. For every $1 donated they distribute $4 worth of food to those in need. 80 to 100 people volunteer every day to help people in the need.
