You can help end childhood hunger in our community. 

Our grassroots, kid-first, partner-powered model ensures every dollar donated and every hour of time given goes further and goes where it’s needed, feeding tens of thousands in our community during breaks from school. Let's work together to end childhood hunger in our own backyard and create a healthy future for kids in our city.

You can make an online donation to I Can for Kids anytime. Whether you make a one-time gift or give monthly support, your donation will go directly to feeding hungry kids in Calgary.


The generosity of organizations and businesses in our community underpins our program. We offer supporters the opportunity to be a local champion and to engage their staff in a worthy cause. Ask us how your organization can make a difference.


We are volunteer driven and rely on our community to help us run our organization, spread the word about childhood hunger, and carry out our campaigns. Find out how you can help today.

I Can for Kids Grocery Gift Card Drive

As a direct result of financial stress, too many children and youth are going hungry every day in Calgary. With the COVID-19 crisis, we’ve had to adapt so we can provide immediate and meaningful solutions to support children and families that are affected today and through the coming months. With your support and that of our agency partners, we distribute $50 grocery gift cards to thousands of children and families facing immediate food insecurity all year long. In the summer months, we supplement our grocery gift cards with fresh, healthy food when school nutrition programs are no longer available.

Since the onset of the pandemic, we have provided nearly $1,000,000 in grocery gift card value to hungry kids in 136 communities across the city. If you can give, please do. Every dollar will make a difference to hungry children in Calgary today and in the weeks and months ahead.

I Can for Kids – locally founded, locally funded, and locally focused.

Our kids-first, partner-powered model ensures every dollar donated goes further and goes where it’s needed, feeding thousands of hungry kids in our community. But we can do it without you. Your donation today matters.
