Brown Bagging for Calgary's Kids provides nutritious lunches to 1800 kids in Calgary schools and programs every day. As we work towards mitigating child hunger, we also act as a catalyst to community-based solutions.
Our operations continue to grow and demand is on a steep increase. Costs are also on the rise. The great idea of raising the deposit on recyclables in January has likely reduced the amount going to our landfills but it has also increased our juice costs by almost $6000. We are always looking for individuals or organizations to have a juice drive for BB4CK. Collect 250ml tetras (5packs, case of 40) of real juice and we will be happy to make a pick up.
We are delivering to more than 60 schools every day (sometimes as high as 80) and with gas at more than 80 cents again, BB4CK is spending more than $5000 on fuel. A $25, $50, or $100 gas card would help us ensure that more resources are going to purchase food. Brown Bagging for Calgary’s Kids 315, 223 12 Avenue SW Calgary, AB T2R 0G9
