The Food Bank hopes that people will support Veterans during the holiday season

CALGARY (660 NEWS) – The new Veterans Association’s Food Bank recently held a dinner at its warehouse in the northeast to show local veterans that they’re not forgotten between Remembrance Day and Christmas.

As Vice President of the Veterans Food Bank, Howard Leong tells City News, the dinner was a way to show support and bring some good cheer to veterans.

“Remembrance Day is the worst day for the veterans, and the week after, because some of them have survivor guilt, that they survived but their brothers and sisters did not. The dinner is to make them feel good,” said Leong.

Leong adds that they welcome any type of donation to the Veterans Food Bank whether it be food, money or equipment.

“One of the biggest things that we are looking for is an electric forklift. Any type of equipment would be great and helpful to us.”
