Did you know students at more than 2/3 of Calgary's schools receive a lunch from BB4CK?
Hunger in Alberta and Calgary is a reality. And hunger looks different from what you think.
In Alberta, among households with children, 16.7% of Albertans under the age of 18 lived under the poverty threshold in 2018—more than 160,000 CHILDREN. More specifically, to Calgary, 21% of Calgarians said they were struggling to buy food and groceries for themselves and their families.
