Come together, eat together, give together!

The Big Social is a fundraiser where Canadians cook, create, and connect during the month of October to help fight poverty and food insecurity.

This year, The Alex’s amazing community chefs have put together two meal kits you can order and prepare in your home!

How it works

Each meal kit is $80 and comfortably serves four ($20/pp). The kits come with all of the ingredients you need to make the dish (including the salts, oils, etc), as well as easy-to-follow instructions. This is a no-fail way to show your friends and family some love while fighting food insecurity right here in Calgary.

  • Choose the meal kit(s) you would like (Butter Chicken or Butternut Squash Gnocchi)
  • Let us know if you have any dietary restrictions at checkout.
  • Pick up at The Alex Community Food Centre on Thursday November 4 any time between 11 am – 6 pm. (Contactless pick up available).


Meal Kit pre-ordering ends October 28th
