BD&P Feed the Hungry 2014

02.04.14

On Sunday, March 30, 2014, BD&P sponsored and hosted its 14th annual Feed the Hungry Dinner at St. Mary's Cathedral Hall in downtown Calgary. Feed the Hungry is a program that has been run by Catholic Charities for the past 20 years, offering a hot meal to men, women and children living in poverty. BD&P donated the cost of the entire meal and 109 BD&P lawyers, staff and family members volunteered for the day. The volunteers were involved in a variety of ways including meal preparation, cooking, table hosting, food and beverage service and clean-up. This year the endeavour fed 354 appreciative guests with 540 meals. It was a humbling and rewarding experience for our volunteers and BD&P looks forward to being able to assist in this well-run and much needed community service project again in 2015. We extend our gratitude for the opportunity and our praise for the numerous committed and regular volunteers who ensure this program runs on a weekly basis throughout the year.
