There is a serious problem with kids going hungry. Brown Bagging for Calgary’s Kids invites
and empowers people to work together to feed and care for these kids, so they can grow up to
reach their potential. Their vision is a future where communities ensure no kids go hungry.
1 in 10 households in Alberta experience food insecurity – which is inadequate or insecure
access to food. Food insecurity in children exacerbates mental health problems, developing
from childhood to adolescence.
Kids are fed from a combination of their downtown kitchen, groups in the community, and
funded, school-based programs. They also provide grocery cards to families with children
learning at home.
Together, Hope provided this charity with an assortment of baking supplies and snacks for lunches. We also collected $595 for this wonderful organization.
