So let's do something about it!
Buy some nutritious meals for those in need and make a tangible difference for people in your community.
Nobody should ever have to ask the question "Where does my next meal come from?"
Unfortunately, many Canadians have to face this question every day. And when you’re hungry, it’s hard to focus on anything else — wellness, housing or making big life decisions.
Together, we can empower people experiencing hunger, and foster well-being for community members currently struggling with food security.
