Weekends and More (1 Point)

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.

Your donation supports

$2,500 supports 200 Kids with nutritious food for a weekend

$1,250 supports 100 Kids with nutritious food for a weekend

$500 supports 40 Kids with nutritious food for a weekend
