About the program
Together with the Calgary Board of Education we recognize that students who rely on food programs during the week, may need nutritious food on the weekends. Students in the Weekends and More (WAM) program are identified by their teacher, counsellor or resource worker. They receive nutritious hampers containing two days’ worth of kid-friendly food that discreetly fit into a backpack. You can help the WAM program and ensure hunger is not a barrier to learning.
