MOVING FROM FOR TO WITH
New pilot program
BB4CK is committed to a future where no child goes hungry. We will continue to empower Calgarians to take action to feed and care for kids in our city. Our community trusts us to take action in pursuing innovative and lasting solutions to combat food insecurity in Calgary.
We are excited to share our new project titled: Moving from “For” to “With.” As a well-established community food support organization, BB4CK understands that no one knows better than our community about the support they need to thrive.
The Moving from “For” to “With” project (FTW) invites families in our community to participate in engagement opportunities that will encourage them to share their lived-experience to help design future programs and increase the capacity for the sector to provide dignified, experience-informed programming to address food insecurity in Calgary. In efforts to ensure an ethical exchange between BB4CK and project participants, monthly grocery cards are provided to participating families for sharing their input and lived experiences.
Since October 2022, BB4CK has been working with families in the city who participate in our programming to gather input, learn from their experiences, and implement changes to our program to best serve the kids’ needs in Calgary. As the prevalence of food insecurity continues to rise, we are excited to seek input from those who best understand their kids’ needs during these times.
