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 4,400 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.
On average, it costs $2 to make a deliver a lunch full of healthy, filling food for a hungry child in our city.
