About Us

Giving Back

Drink, eat and give back

In 2017, the Festival donated over $16,000 to local charities and organizations, thanks to help from Festival guests and sponsors. In upcoming years, the Rocky Mountain Wine & Food Festival aims to donate even more to these fantastic organizations.

RMWFF Raises a Glass to Giving Back

Calgary Food Bank

The Festival team donated 24 hours of volunteer time at the Calgary Food Bank in 2017. In addition, attendees of the Calgary Rocky Mountain Wine & Food Festival helped us donate nearly $1,800 and 550 lbs of food. Help us raise even more – non-perishable food items and monetary donations can be made at the door. Let’s see if Calgary attendees can bring more in than their Edmonton counterparts – the challenge is on!

Edmonton Food Bank

In 2017, 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 $2,000 and 650 lbs of food for the Edmonton Food Bank. We can’t wait to see how much Edmonton attendees raise next year!

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 is proud to partner with Mealshare in 2018; for every VIP ticket sold to the Festival, one healthy meal will be donated to a youth in need!
