It’s been a busy start to 2018 here at BB4CK and we are so grateful for all the individuals and groups who join us in helping to ensure there are no hungry kids in our city!
Here is a peek into what we were up to in January and February of 2018!

Calgary, your actions make it possible to feed and care for 4,200 kids each school day, who would otherwise go without a healthy lunch.
Need in our city for healthy lunches and supplemental lunch items at school continues to grow, and your contributions of time, talent, and funds help ensure there are no hungry kids in our city.
The BB4CK community is impacting 1,000 more children each school day than we were in January 2017. Over the last two years, the number of children requiring lunches and supplemental items has increased by 45%.
These children have the food they need because of YOU – our incredible community. You take action to help ensure no child in our city goes hungry at lunchtime and we are grateful and inspired by your continued support.
Volunteers create lunches in our downtown kitchen and in community kitchens across the city; 57% of the 215 schools we care for are supported by volunteers making lunches in their own community, and last year, you contributed nearly $1.3 million to make all this possible.

Calgary Flames forward Sam Bennett, in partnership with Brown Bagging for Calgary’s Kids and the Calgary Flames Foundation, has launched a wonderful new initiative to help ensure every Calgary child has a lunch at school.
This past November, Bennett aligned with BB4CK as an official ambassador and with the Calgary Flames Foundation, donated $70,000 to help feed and care for kids in our city!
Through March 31st, Bennett is on a mission with his #SamFeedsKids campaign to raise awareness and funds for 25,000 lunches for kids in our city. Calgarians can donate to Sam’s campaign by visiting calgaryflames.com/samfeedskids and have the opportunity to purchase raffle tickets to win various Flames prizes. The first raffle is for the chance to win 2 tickets to the April 7, 2018 Flames game and a Meet & Greet with Sam Bennett. Additional chances to win will also be available on social media by using the hashtag #SamFeedsKids.
On the #SamFeedsKids launch day, Bennett joined us in the kitchen with some young hockey players to prepare lunches and talk about the 25,000 lunch goal. Check out the CTV story here and Bennett talking about the campaign on Fan 960 here.
