Where do the funds go?
Every day at the Edge School for Athletes, teachers and staff work to support students so they can perform at their best in school and in sports. We know that food is as critical for kids as the right environment. As part of the 20K in 20 Days challenge, the Edge School has partnered with Brown Bagging for Calgary’s Kids to support their work to feed students across the city, and direct some funds back to Edge to ensure our school and sports facilities are clean and safe for everyone that visits. All funds raised will be shared between the Edge School and Brown Bagging for Calgary's Kids. Fundraising is optional, but appreciated.
About Brown Bagging for Calgary's Kids
For 30 years, BB4CK has been feeding hungry kids in our city. Food nourishes us. Brings us together. Connects us. From enjoying a family meal to trading sandwiches in the cafeteria, some of the best memories are built over food. 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.
The BB4CK community is committed to ensuring that every kid in every school in our city has the lunch they need to flourish. They feed kids who would otherwise go without.
