About the Caravan Committee:

• The Caravan Committee has over 160 volunteers that use their holiday time to volunteer for the Calgary Stampede

• The Caravan Committee has gone green, and using bio-degradable plates and utensils at all of their breakfasts.

• During Stampede week we will serve breakfast at two shopping malls per day to more than 100,000 guests, including Suncor Family Day in front of the Grandstand Stampede Park, we go through a lot of product over these eight days:

– We make 200,000 pancakes (that’s enough batter to fill an Olympic-size swimming pool!)

– We use 5 tons of pancake mix (5 tons is equivalent to the combined weight of a Smart   Car + a Chevrolet Corvette + a Cadillac Escalade)

– We grill 2 tons of sausage patties

– We serve 110,000 juice boxes, which is 22,000L of Orange Juice

– We pour 2,000 liters of maple syrup (Enough syrup to fill up a 7 person hot tub, with still 150 liters left over!)
