who we are
Calgary Meals on Wheels
To build a stronger, caring community, Calgary Meals on Wheels promotes health and independence by providing quality, nutritious and affordable meals to people in need of our services.
This year, Calgary Meals on Wheels is proud to receive ownership of YYC Pizza Week and has definite plans to continue the tradition. On September 21, 2018, YYC Pizza Week will commence its 5th annual event. The torch has been passed and the ovens are hot!
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.
