This is the 9th & final Mothering Matters blog for the 2016 campaign:

Tackling Childhood Hunger One Lunch at a Time

“If we can conquer space, we can conquer childhood hunger.”

– Buzz Aldrin

For this final Mothering Matters blog for 2016, we wanted to highlight an organization that reflects the concept of “mothering in the broader perspective.”

As the old saying goes, it takes a village to raise a child. And sometimes it takes a community to feed a child – or three thousand of them, which is how many lunches the organization, Brown Bagging for Calgary’s Kids, often makes in a day for children who would otherwise go hungry.

So we asked BB4CK Executive Director, Tanya Koshowski, for her thoughts on how tackling childhood hunger links to the theme of Mothering Matters.

Please click here to view the 90-second video Tanya and her team made in response to this question. We LOVE Tanya’s message!

If you’re interesting in supporting BB4CK, each lunch costs only about $1 to make, thanks to the help of their in-kind partners. So a small donation goes a very long way 🙂
