YYC Pizza Week
In 2014, Wanda Baker, founder of YYC Pizza Week, established a 10-day, annual event with charity, community and pizza crusts in mind. Each year, local participating restaurants craft an exclusive pizza in a competition to be lauded Calgary's best pizza. From each purchase, a slice of the proceeds goes to Calgary Meals on Wheels, thereby directly supporting the nutritional needs of vulnerable Calgarians. In a joint effort, more than 40 participating restaurants and our pizza-lovin' community raised over $35,000 in the past four years.
