Home Stager Encourages Donations to the Calgary Food Bank

December 08, 2015 (posted by Jennifer Campbell, Home Staging Calgary)

I know times are tough, especially around Christmas time. So when I saw a news piece recently about an increasing number of people turning to Alberta food banks for support, it was an important reminder. Since Safeway has an easy Food Bank Donation hamper, I’ll be making a donation to the Calgary Food Bank.

As a Calgary home stager, my job is to stage a property to appeal to the ideal lifestyle of potential buyers. Of course, the kitchen is one of the most important rooms to include in the staging process. That’s because it’s often the hub of the home – where our closest relationships are nurtured.


In the ideal lifestyle that potential buyers imagine, at no point would there be a lack of food to prepare and serve in that kitchen. So the connection to my work is not lost on me.

That’s why I’m making a donation to the Calgary Food Bank, with love, and I urge you to do the same (to whatever Alberta food bank is closest to you).

Did you know that last year, children made up 43% of the people who went to the Calgary Food Bank for help? And that was 6% higher than the national average?

Does this room look familiar?

Before: Kitchen before home staging.

See the difference home staging makes.

After: The pears and Perrier water help to showcase an active healthy lifestyle in this kitchen.

You and I can’t solve every problem. But we CAN drop off some food or volunteer our time.

Will you join me in reaching out to support the Calgary Food Bank? We can help keep the kitchen a nurturing space in every home.

Please share this post with your contacts in Alberta and do your part to fill up our local food bank shelves this summer. Let’s not wait until the holidays. They need our help now.
