The need is great.
The ways to help, many.
Our primary way of getting food supports to families with hungry kids is through cash donations – which we use to buy grocery gift cards and healthy food. But there are other ways to support our work.
When you help us help families feed themselves you are:
- giving people dignity and choice
- meeting immediate hunger needs in our city with fresh and nutritious food
- participating in the conversation around poverty reduction
Channel your passions for good
Whatever it is that inspires you, take that interest and turn it into a FUNdraiser for I Can for Kids to help us feed Calgary’s over 50,000 hungry kids.
Check out past fundraisers and contact us for information on how we can help you kickstart your idea.
Fundraising in action
From now through to the end of September when you purchase a Back-to-School bundle from SPUD, they’ll donate $1 to I Can for Kids!
Our fearless friend, Karen Knowlton, has been hard at work training for Karen Climbs for Kids and will be summiting Mount Athabasca (3,491m) in Jasper National Park on July 23 in support of I Can for Kids.
Visitors can stop by for a complimentary Little Villager single serving of Village Ice Cream. The “pop-up” will be located near the University District Discovery Centre every Thursday from 3-6pm. Donations to I Can for Kids are welcome.
Help is always welcome!
COVID protocols and an ever evolving situation means we can only invite small groups to assemble food packs. When restrictions are lifted, we will welcome the many hands that make light work. A great big thank you to all of our previous volunteers for stepping up and helping us feed Calgary’s hungry kids.
