Every day, the BB4CK community comes together to make lunches for about 4,700 kids who would otherwise go hungry. Over 200 volunteers in 30 community kitchens around the city, wake up early every morning to make sure lunches get to schools in time.
Students in more than 2/3 of Calgary’s schools rely on a lunch from BB4CK. Kids without a lunch miss out on more than a meal. Kids who spend the day hungry can fall behind and chances are, they never really catch up.
“I honestly thought being hungry was just part of life. You need food to just function as a person. I snapped at my math teacher because she was bugging me; I didn’t mean to snap…it just happened.
The weird part is that I thought I was on my way to the office. Instead, the teacher stopped, asked what was wrong, and then talked to me. I admitted I was hungry, and that’s when she showed me the “Blue Bin.” This box had more food than I knew what to do with. ” Alex 14 years old
