A better way to help the homeless and hungry in Calgary

Calgary's Road Home is a community program that provides meals, housing and other programs to Calgary's homeless and hungry. It is a partnership between the Calgary Parking Authority, the Calgary Homeless Foundation and the Calgary Food Bank.

This program aims to redirect money given to panhandlers. The Homeless Foundation and the Food Bank's goal is to help the homeless and the hungry. Despite their efforts, many times during the day you may walk by Calgarians in need. Often being approached can be awkward, so we have developed an idea to help the less fortunate and make it easy for you to make a difference.


Donations are collected using curbside ParkPlus pay machines and ParkPlus cell phone accounts. You can donate by entering zone 4663 (HOME) for the Homeless Foundation and zone 3663 (FOOD) for the Food Bank. To view a map of ParkPlus machines you can currently donate at, click here.

100% of donations go directly to the Calgary Homeless Foundation and the Calgary Food Bank.
