Tanya Koshowski / Executive Director

Jill Birch / Community Coordinator

“Working at BB4CK brings together my heart for children and my passion of HOPE (Helping Others Practise Enough). I love helping others make a difference. It is an honour and very humbling to work with such an amazing community to effect change in the daily life of a child and ensure there are no hungry kids in Calgary.”

Bethany Ross / Sustainability Coordinator

“Everyone can do something to make a difference in their community. My something is to help kids and to support communities. I get to do both at BB4CK, helping make sure kids have a lunch to eat and helping to empower others to make a difference as well. “

Nikita Scringer / Kitchen Supervisor

“If you ever want to see a bit of real life magic, just step foot inside the Brown Bagging for Calgary’s Kids Kitchen. I love working for BB4CK because it combines my love and passion for food, kids, and contributing positively to my community. It is both a gratifying and humbling line of work and I feel blessed to be able to be apart of such a hard working organization with awesome values.”

Josh Folden / Technology Coordinator

“For me, I love working at BB4CK because of the social impact piece. When a child is fed, it feels cared for, safe. When a child is fed, it will be more likely to do well in school, more likely to be happy, and less likely to be involved in crimes like theft. Our society benefits because a person who has benefited from society, is more likely to make meaningful contributions to that society.”

“To be a part of the solution to ensuring children receive healthy lunches they might otherwise go without – to enable them to be happy and succeed, is a most wonderful feeling. So many pieces come together each day in the BB4CK organization to see that children receive much needed nourishment and I am so humbled to be one of these pieces.”

“Working for BB4CK is truly a privilege and a pleasure. I wake up everyday excited to go to work and interact with others who feel as passionate as I do about eliminating hunger in our schools. It is inspiring and humbling watching the citizens in our community take meaningful action through volunteering and donating.

“I love being a part of BB4CK because it gives me the opportunity to help provide kids with the nutrition they need to grow, learn and play, letting kids be kids. It is also a privilege to be a part of this amazing community of inspiring volunteers dedicated to feeding hungry kids every day.”

Terra01

Terra Davidson / Chair, Board of Directors

“As I started to think about getting my daughter ready to start her school career, I began to realize how she would have all the supplies and more importantly the food she would need to succeed. It got me thinking about how many kids in Calgary were not in the same position. I couldn’t leave it as a passing thought – I had to take action and try to help every child in Calgary have the same chance at success. BB4CK is the perfect fit for me – it takes a lot of work behind the scenes but the passion that drives this organization is so simple…..we feed kids! That’s it.  And one day I know my daughter will be proud that I took action.”
