The Sexy Men of YEG Food Calendar

This holiday season, Edmontonians can purchase a calendar done with a wink and a nod to pin-up and firemen calendars of the past. The twist is this one is done by local small business owners. These generous and brave men have covered all the costs of producing the calendar. Every penny of the $20 price goes to help those in need.

The brain child of Owen Petersen of the Prairie Mill Bread Company and Corey Meyer of Acme Meat Market, the “Sexy Men of YEG” calendar was inspired by a bakery pin-up calendar Petersen saw in an antique store. “I thought it was odd to have a pin-up calendar for a bakery, so we started joking about it,” says Petersen. The joke soon turned serious when they decided to do their own calendar for Edmonton’s Food Bank. They set to work convincing others to join them.

The 12 business owners partnered with Detour Photography and Patrick Kerby Design who did the design and photography work and printer UPS Terwillegar when they produced the fun tongue-in-cheek calendar.
