Bare Bottoms Diaper Drive

Did you know that 1 in 5 moms struggle to provide clean diapers for their children? This Mother’s Day, help a family in need.

The Calgary Food Bank experienced a 16.5% increase in demand in 2016, providing 4,141 baby hampers to families in need and they rely solely on donations for diapers. The Bare Bottoms Diaper Drive was started in 2013 by an amazing Calgary Food Bank volunteer who wanted to address a need in the community. As anyone who has ever cared for a baby will tell you, costs can add up quickly!

We’ll be collecting diaper donations from May 11th - 14th and welcome:
- new and opened packages of diapers
- all sizes needed, particularly 5 & 6
- pull-ups and training pants welcomed too

Kids’ Garden Club by Poppy Innovations

Poppy Innovations’ is hosting their kids’ garden club for a one hour session every Thursday in the summer for two age groups: 4 - 8 year olds and 9 - 12 year olds.

Learning how to sow, grow, harvest and prepare food will help kids develop gardening and cooking skills and empower them to make healthy food choices throughout their lives and inspire children’s natural curiosity to try new vegetables and fruit.

The Calgary Farmers’ Market will provide Market Bucks & a shopping bag to children registered for the FULL program. Market Bucks are accepted like cash by all Market vendors. Enjoy your market bucks to quietly shop while your child is participating in the garden club or purchase goodies with your young ones to show you what they learned and make their delicious recipe at home.
