Haircuts 4 Hunger
An annual cut-a-thon event to raise funds for The Community Kitchen Program, dedicated to ending child poverty in Calgary, AB. The annual event provides haircuts, among the services, at a discounted rate with 100% of the proceeds going to CKP. The programs they have built help adults, children and families to eat healthier, at a lower cost, learning how to cut the grocery bills and most importantly how to keep these healthy habits throughout their lifetime. Children are the future, which is why they teach our next generation about nutrition, smart grocery shopping, how to read a food label, safety with knives, cross contamination, and even proper etiquette. These children will obtain information and hopefully keep it with them as they grow, influencing the following generations and in turn, lowering the hunger population in this city.
