Get Involved

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.


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.

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.


Talk and post about us.

Shared knowledge can empower a community for change. The more people who know about our work, the more children and youth get healthy, nutritious food.
