MARCH DONATION DRIVE!
Did you know that in 2020, more than 1 in 5 Calgarians admitted they were struggling to easily buy food and groceries for themselves and their families? And the number of families who live with food insecurity on a regular basis continues to rise from 17% in 2017. Further, 43% of individuals who access Food Banks in Alberta are children.
Could you imagine having to choose between paying rent and feeding your children? How often do your children cry “I’m hungry” during a given day? Imagine if they truly were hungry, and you had no food for them, or that you had to limit them to basic small meals each day?
Made by Momma helps parents feed their children. We are a Food Bank with a heart and 100% of the Families that Made by Momma serves have young children. Volunteers prepare and freeze wholesome meals to fill families’ freezers. We also distribute food hampers filled with necessary non-perishable goods. This month, in honour of National Nutrition Month (dieticians.ca) we are collecting SNACKS FOR KIDS!
When you’re out and about doing your groceries or errands, we invite you to add a couple of extra snacks to your cart to share with families who may not have enough. Non-perishable snacks, suitable for school lunches, and preferably individually packaged are top of our needs list. You can help! Together, we can make a difference.
Please check our website for open hours which may vary slightly each week. madebymomma.org/drop-off-locations
Scroll down until you see “Open Hours” written in red. Drop off your donation to our Resource Centre, and include your original sales receipt if you would like to receive a charitable tax receipt for your purchase for 2021.
We like to make it as easy as we can for you to support local families who need a little help to feed their children. You can also order children’s snacks through our AMAZON WISH LIST, for delivery direct to Made by Momma! www.tinyurl.com/mbmsnacks
Please note: Items on our Amazon Wish List are bulk options, with comparable pricing to other retailers. We prefer to make the most of Amazon deliveries (minimizing packaging and deliveries) by ensuring we aren’t receiving one or two small items per package. You are also invited to order a variety of smaller snack packs that could ship together.
Thank you for your support!
