The lunches

1225_BB4K_028_f1 copy

For each dollar we receive, BB4CK can make and deliver a healthy lunch to one child. Despite our name, there are actually no brown bags. We stopped using brown paper lunch bags several years ago, to reduce waste and make it less obvious which kids were receiving our lunches.

Today, all our lunches are packed into large bins. Each bin contains all the components a school needs for the number of lunches it has requested.

A side benefit of this change is flexibility to meet various needs. For example, some kids need a full meal, while others require a supplement to an inadequate lunch.

We aim to provide variety along with nutrition. Each lunch we deliver contains a healthy sandwich made with fresh bread. Ingredients include cheese, ham, turkey, tuna, egg salad or peanut-free “pea butter” and jam.

We also include vegetables and fruit, and a snack such as yogurt or homemade cookies. Each item carries a high nutritional value and either meets or exceeds the Canadian health recommendations.
