Harvest Hills Cares Calgary is a Federally Registered Non Profit that operates in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
HHCC started on March 16, 2020, as a community group at a kitchen table and became an official Federally Registered Canadian NonProfit Organization on December 16th, 2020!
We are a volunteer-based non-profit and do not take any funds for our services at any time. Any donation that comes into us goes right back into the community in the form of Groceries for our Food Hampers, Rent payments to landlords, and utility/phone bill payments that are paid directly to the provider.
We also have a food hamper program where we help families, seniors, and single individuals in need by providing help for the family for a whole month. We've found by asking what is needed and what is wanted, we can put together a hamper that is geared to the need of the request versus handing out a premade food hamper.
By giving a hamper assembled out of the list of needs and wants, we have complete consumption of the food hamper with zero waste...In contrast, a premade, put-together hamper of assorted items has a consumption rate of 45% to 55%, with the remaining things in the hamper going to the garbage and being wasted.
Our Non Profit desperately needs donations that we use in every hamper we put together. We also need outreach supplies for the other initiatives we currently have.
A list of some of the everyday items that are needed for both our Food Hamper and Outreach Initiative programs are:

Canned Meats, Canned Soups, Canned Fruits, Canned Vegetables, Assorted Condiments, Pasta, Pasta Sauce, Rice, Peanut Butter, Jams, Honey, Nutella, Coffee, Tea, Coffee Creamer, Powdered Milk, Powdered Creamer, Juice Boxes, Cereal, School Snacks, Paper Towels, Toilet Paper, Tooth Paste, Mouth Wash, Tooth Brushes, Hand Soap, Laundry Soap, Dish Soap, Various Household Cleaning Supplies, School Supplies, Diapers, Formula ETC.
