You can help end summer childhood hunger in Calgary.
$5 feeds a hungry kid for a day or more.
Childhood hunger is real in Calgary, especially during the summer. Too many of our kids live with food insecurity, and more go hungry every year. Kids who go hungry even just part of the year may never reach their full potential. It harms their physical and mental health and can make them feel isolated and stigmatized.
We provide non-perishable food packs, fresh produce and other nutritious items to food insecure children and youth during the summer months, when gaps in Calgary’s current food support system would otherwise leave them hungry.
Last summer with your help, we provided 64,000 meals to hungry kids. This year even more kids are at risk of going hungry and we need your help more than ever.
As we prepare for our busiest summer yet, we need your support to help us reach our goal of providing more than 70,000 meals and 100,000 snacks to hungry kids in Calgary.
It’s easy! During the month of May, visit any Calgary Save On Foods and purchase an I Can for Kids food pack to donate to a hungry child this summer.

Together we’ll give kids the happy, healthy summer they deserve.
Leaving them hungry, means leaving them behind.
Your support could make all the difference.
