Sip, Sample & Give
In 2022, the Festival donated $8,000 to local charities and organizations, with help from our Festival guests and sponsors. In upcoming years, the Rocky Mountain Wine & Food Festival aims to donate even more to these fantastic organizations.
Calgary Food Bank
In 2022, the Festival team, and attendees of the Calgary Rocky Mountain Wine & Food Festival helped us donate nearly $3,000 and 195 lbs of food. Help us raise even more this year – non-perishable food items and monetary donations can be made at the door.
Edmonton Food Bank
In 2022, Festival guests were encouraged to bring non-perishable food items and monetary donations to support those in need – and boy, did they deliver! The Edmonton Festival raised nearly $2,700 and 81 lbs of food for the Edmonton Food Bank. We can’t wait to see how much Edmonton attendees raise next festival!
Mealshare is committed to creating a world where it’s easier to share with those in need, and every child and youth is fed as a result. The Festival was proud to partner with Mealshare in 2022 and donated a total of $2,340!
SAIT Culinary Campus
In 2022, the Rocky Mountain Wine & Food Festival was able to continue to support culinary students by providing opportunities to continue to grow their skills and craft by working with exhibitors during the event.
