Other Ways You Can Help Feed Hungry Kids
Are you in need of help?
We all have different strengths we can share to ensure every kid in Calgary gets the food they need. There are no limits to the ways you can use your strengths to feed hungry kids in your community.
Fundraise with BB4CK
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.
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.
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.
