Our Work

1237_BB4CK_124_f1

BB4CK works in partnership with Calgary schools to make and deliver free healthy lunches for students who would otherwise go hungry.

3,200 kids

Through the work of community groups and volunteers, we provide lunches for approximately 3,200 kids each school day. Lunches are prepared in our main kitchen, and in various other locations 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.

$1 to feed a child

Each lunch costs only about $1 to make, thanks to the help of our in-kind partners. These partners include the Calgary Italian Bakery, Chongos Produce Market, Wholesale Club, Calgary Food Bank and Mountain Meadows Food Processing.

Thousands of volunteers

The work of thousands of caring volunteers alongside our small and dedicated staff means contributions go directly toward feeding hungry kids. So when an individual or corporation makes a donation of any size, the impact is easy to calculate and the effect is immediate.

Our Mission:

Connect and inspire people to take meaningful action to feed and care for kids.

Our Vision:

Communities that make sure all kids are fed.
