Since the Holiday Train began in 1999, it’s raised more than $21 million and collected 5 million pounds of food for food banks across North America.

“Food banks and communities across Canada are so excited to see the CP Holiday Train return, as it brings together the City of Calgary to kick off the holidays and give back at the same time,” said Calgary Food Bank President and CEO James McAra. “The Calgary Food Bank is so grateful for CP’s continued support to help us build a Canada where no one goes hungry.”

With the absence of the train last year, many communities found alternatives to help donate to local food banks.

This is the Holiday Train’s 24th year.
