ZOOM MEETING: Food Bank Update

James McAra started at the Calgary Food Bank 15 years ago in public affairs.

He is now in charge of a staff of 42 plus directing 131 volunteers every day, and he manages an annual budget of $6 million.

"When I first started I was chief cook and bottle washer, and today I am proud to say that I am still the chief cook and bottle washer," he said.

Watching McAra on the sorting line at the food bank, interacting with staff and volunteers, it appears he loves what he does.

But sometimes he gets frustrated the demand is always greater than the supply.
