Our vision is simple: we see a future where communities ensure no kids go hungry. Our mission is to connect and inspire people to take meaningful action to feed and care for kids.\n\nBB4CK is a mission‑focused grassroots organization that works to ensure every kid has enough nutritious food to eat. Working in partnership with families, schools and communities, we invite and empower people to work together to feed and care for kids, so they can grow to reach their full potential. What is the problem? 1 in 10 households in Alberta experience food insecurity – inadequate or insecure access to food – and this number is growing. Food insecurity in children exacerbates mental health problems, developing from childhood to adolescence. Families are working hard to feed their children (the majority of households who experience food insecurity note that their main income is wages from employment) but often because of circumstances beyond their control they struggle to provide this basic need. It’s not a lack of effort or a matter of laziness. It’s that at the end of the day, there is just not enough healthy food in their home to go around. These families need support from their communities.Food nourishes us. Brings us together. Connects us. From enjoying a family meal around the table to trading sandwiches in the cafeteria, some of our best memories are built around food. Unfortunately, too many Calgarians don’t have access to reliable sources of food. We know that hungry people can’t focus, can’t learn, can’t grow to be their best.When kids don’t have food, they can’t reach their potential, and they miss out on key childhood experiences. They don’t make friends as easily, they have a harder time learning, they miss more school, and are sick more often.We are committed to ensuring that every kid in our city has the food they need to flourish. We exist to feed kids who would otherwise go without
