What does hunger look like?
Do you have hungry kids in your school?
1 in 10 households in Alberta experience food insecurity – inadequate or insecure access to food. The problem is growing, and reasearch shows that food insecurity in children is strongly linked to mental health problems and behavioural issues.
Currently, BB4CK is feeding kids in over 2/3rds of Calgary’s schools, and already 2% of Calgary’s kids. In some schools we are feeding just one child, in other schools, we are feeding every student. But we have never turned away a hungry kid or a school asking for support.
