AN UNPRECEDENTED NEED

Children in Calgary are coming to school hungry unlike any other time

Right now, up to 60% of children are coming to school with no food in several of the Calgary schools we’ve partnered with. Tragically, many of them won’t even show up at all because of the embarrassment of coming to school hungry.

The pandemic pushed low-income families further into poverty and now, historic inflation is making it even more challenging for struggling families to access healthy meals. The need for food and stable support is absolutely critical so that kids can get the nutrition they need to learn and grow.

Already, we are seeing many new children coming to school hungry this year. A young girl named Leah has shown up several times without any food.

When Leah opens her fridge, it is completely empty -— there is nothing inside. Leah’s mom does the best she can, but it is hard with limited resources. Her recently-diagnosed medical condition has made it even more challenging. With increased costs of food, she can no longer afford fresh fruits and vegetables, and the meals Leah gets at Hope Mission are sometimes the only meals she gets.

“Sometimes this is the only meal I get.”

Leah is only in Grade Three. Like many other struggling children in Calgary, the pain and challenges of food insecurity start so young. They urgently need your help.

Vulnerable children like Leah are suffering right now — sitting in classrooms at this very moment going hungry. They face growing challenges every day — but today, you can immediately help solve some of their greatest challenges through meals at school that give them hope for a better future.

THE PLAN TO FEED HUNGRY KIDS

Your kindness is their solution

Today, you’re invited to partner with us in the biggest and most important campaign of the year: sponsoring classrooms of hungry children in Calgary.

Every child you feed today will receive a healthy lunch and nutritious snack that will inspire learning, growth, and will help kids reach their full potential in life. Hope begins with a meal and today, that meal begins with you. Your generosity today will transform lives tomorrow.

With lasting partnerships already in place in several of Calgary’s neediest schools, now we just need your help to provide these healthy lunches to vulnerable children who urgently need this support.

YOUR HELP IS URGENTLY NEEDED

You can feed hungry kids in Calgary classrooms today

Without your support, meeting the rising needs of Calgary’s hungriest children won’t be possible. With a need for over 40,000 meals in the upcoming school year, this project alone will cost over $108,000.

That’s why today, I’m asking you to prayerfully consider making a sacrificial gift that will feed a classroom of hungry kids. Not only will your gift get put to work immediately in local schools, you’ll be making a long-term impact as you invest even deeper in the lives of struggling children and help them reach their full potential in life.

A special gift of $337 will sponsor an entire classroom for a week of meals. Or you can double your impact and provide two weeks of meals for $674.

Thank you in advance for your care and compassion for these kids. Your generosity will transform lives this year.

Please respond by December 10th, 2022
