Communities that make sure all kids are fed.
BB4CK works with Calgary schools and our community to make and deliver free healthy lunches for students who would otherwise go hungry. Through the work of community groups and volunteers, we impact 4,200 kids each school day. Lunches are prepared in our main kitchen, and in various other locations throughout the city by community groups including retirees, parent groups and local businesses.
Nourishment is available to any young person who arrives at school without enough to eat. BB4CK works with school staff members to identify needs and to plan how best to make sure hungry students get the nutrition required to think clearly and learn. By enabling better education outcomes, BB4CK gives students a hand up, not just a handout.
Each lunch from our downtown kitchen costs only about $1 to make.

What People Are Saying
"Volunteer opportunities build camaraderie among employees, from vice-presidents to brand-new hires — it’s an invaluable team-building experience. "
— JUDI PAGONIS, SPECTRA ENERGY
"The Prosser Charitable Foundation made its first donation in 2005. We’re proud of the work Brown Bagging for Calgary’s Kids does, and believe that every child deserves a level playing field. Providing good, nutritious lunches helps do that. "
— KATHY PROSSER, PROSSER FOUNDATION
"Often times I would only have one meal a day because I never had a resource to eat breakfast or lunch. But now I have the energy to get through the day and do the work in order to graduate and get my diploma. Thank you again for the amazing difference you made for all of us."
