There is no limit to the ways you can use your strengths to help feed hungry kids in Calgary.

Join the amazing community of people working together to end childhood hunger in our city!

Make a One-Time Donation

Your donation will feed hungry kids. Kids who are arriving at school today without access to a healthy lunch. These are kids who feel isolated from their peers or who are struggling to learn in school because they just don’t have the energy to make it through the day.

Become a Hunger Hero

Hunger Heroes are special group of people who give monthly to Brown Bagging for Calgary’s Kids. They are the superheroes who make our work possible. Hunger Heroes feed kids every school day. Your monthly gift creates a reliable source of funding year-round and provides lunches to children facing hunger.

Host a Snack Drive

Snacks are such an important part of the lunches we make. We provide almost 85,000 snacks each month as part of our lunches – kids love these snacks, and we love making them smile.

Why not run a snack drive with friends, family, colleagues, or others in your community and help make lunch a little brighter for kids in need?

See our Snack Drive Guide and list of Most Needed Items for more information about how to help.

Fundraise to Feed Hungry Kids

From golf tournaments to stampede parties to charity races, there are plenty of ways to raise money to feed hungry kids. You can also turn your hobbies or projects into a fundraiser and help inspire those around you to take action to end childhood hunger in their community. See our Event Planning Guide for more information. When you’re ready to fundraise to feed hungry kids, please fill out our Fundraising Application Form and return it to charmaine@bb4ck.org.

Make your Celebration Special

Why not make your birthday, wedding, graduation, or retirement celebration even more meaningful by requesting donations to feed hungry kids?

Host a 50/50 birthday party for your child this year. Half of the birthday money buys something special for your child and the other half is donated to BB4CK to help feed kids.

What a great way for kids to help kids!

Leave a Legacy

Make a gift to BB4CK in your Will.

Leave a legacy that provides care, connection, and healthy food for kids for many years to come. BB4CK recommends that you consult your own financial planner or lawyer in the preparation of your estate and any charitable designations within.

If you want to discuss or need more information, please contact Charmaine at 403.264.7979 or email charmaine@bb4ck.org

GIFT SECURITIES

What are the advantages of giving a Gift of Securities and Mutual Funds?

  • It is the most tax-effective way to donate, because it removes the taxation of capital gains.
  • You will receive a tax receipt for the market value of your donation.
  • The tax efficiencies of gifts of publicly traded securities may allow you to give more than you might have thought possible.

If you have any questions prior to donating, we suggest you speak with your legal, estate planning, and/or financial advisor before deciding upon your course of action. Securities donations on behalf of BB4CK are handled and processed by Canada Helps. You can find more information here: https://www.canadahelps.org/en/donate/donate-securities/
