What makes the Calgary Food Bank so different?
Margaret Wente, of the Globe and Mail, says:
Not all food banks are alike. This one is among the best. According to Charity Intelligence, it has “a strict policy of referring its clients to appropriate social service agencies within three visits,” so the root causes of their food-bank dependency can be quickly addressed. Its distribution system is highly efficient, and its costs are low.
