CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - March 11, 2011) - Looking for some good music in support of a good cause? Look no further! Jam for Cans highlights local musicians and community-minded businesses while raising food and funds for the Calgary Food Bank and cranking the volume of awareness about hunger in our city.

Local purveyors of food, drink and entertainment are dedicating one special night to the Food Bank. On that night, should you drop by, you will enjoy some amazing music. You will also be asked for a non-perishable food or cash donation for the Food Bank.

Jams will be held from March 13th to March 27th at local pubs and clubs. You can catch a Jam for Cans event at:
