At Fergus & Bix, we believe it's the communities we're in that makes us great. Because of that, we understand the importance for us to give back and to be actively involved in the communities in which we operate. In 2010 we developed "The Charity Tap" program to do just that. With every sale of our feature beer, we take 50¢ and donate it towards a select local charity or community initiative. Since the program's inception, the Fergus & Bix group of restaurants has contributed over $41,000 towards worthy causes.
The Community Kitchen Program of Calgary operates a self-empowering model to address the needs of marginalized Calagarians. This program is continually evolving over the years to meet the changing needs of our city, in response to our deepening awareness and understanding of the complex issues of poverty and hunger. They teach participants how to prepare nutritious meals, budget their finances -- making their income stretch by preparing cost effective, healthy meals, as well as providing a means to access nutritious food.
These programs help adults, children and families to eat healthier at a lower costs, by educating how to cut the grocery bills and most importantly how to keep these healthy habits throughout their lifetime. They are not just giving a 'hand-out', but a 'hand-up'!
