It amazed me to realize that in a city as wealthy as Calgary, that so many kids are going hungry every day. I was drawn to this organization not only for the amazing work that they do, but by the community based model that supports this initiative. This program is funded by volunteers, community groups and private/corporate donations. It truly is a community based solution, which inspires me.
BB4CK helps to directly feed thousands of kids in our area every day and for some kids, it may be the only food they get each day.
After serving a few terms on the board as treasurer, I am honored to take over as the 2013 Board Chair for Brown Bagging For Calgary's Kids. I would invite you to take a few minutes and watch our Annual General Meeting video below.
This is what makes me tick.....
