192,391. The number of lives that depend on the Calgary Food Bank. 1 out of 10 Albertan households face food insecurities and turn to the Food Bank for help. Especially now, when the whole world is experiencing an economic crisis.
With that in mind, in an Aid to Humanity event on October 31, 2020, the Church of Christ and the Felix Y. Manalo Foundation in Calgary prepared boxes of donations filled with non-perishable foods to help the Food Bank in helping the community.
The Church of Christ donated more than 755 boxes of non-perishable food, which helped restock the Food Bank and will be able to help the community for weeks.
Calgary Mayor Naheed K. Nenshi sent his greetings to the Iglesia Ni Cristo (Church of Christ). Below is an excerpt:
The Iglesia Ni Cristo (Church of Christ) has set its sights on the global campaign against poverty. When our entire globe is experiencing a time of being physically apart, and many experiencing uncertain circumstances, campaigns such as this also bring us together.
Despite the pandemic, now, more than ever, the Iglesia Ni Cristo (Church of Christ) honours and strives toward the importance of standing together for hope and humanity.
I would also like to take this opportunity to wish Executive Minister Brother Eduardo V. Manalo a happy and healthy 65th birthday on October 31. I hope that the Iglesia Ni Cristo (Church of Christ) will continue to be a source of inspiration to create a kind and compassionate society in the City of Calgary and all four corners of the earth.
