I’m writing to you about an issue I care deeply about – reducing hunger in Canada. Did you know that 38% of those turning to food banks are children and youth?
May 6-10 is Hunger Awareness Week and Food Banks Canada’s “Give It Up For Hunger” campaign makes it easy to support the important cause of helping Canadians in need.
Here’s how you can help:
- Give It Up for Hunger: Challenge yourself to give up your lunch or a staple for the week.
- Give a Shout: Share your experiences – go online and show support via Facebook, Twitter or blogging.
- Give It Out: Donate food, funds or your time to a local food bank.
Join me in giving it up for hunger and helping to raise awareness. Visit hungerawarenessweek.ca or the below Twitter or Facebook buttons for more information.
I’m writing to you as a fellow Canadian who cares deeply about reducing hunger in Canada. Did you know that close to 900,000 Canadians have relied on food banks this past month?
May 6-10 is Hunger Awareness Week and many of us are joining Food Banks Canada’s “Give It Up For Hunger” campaign to support this important cause.
We believe that it is time to meet the short-term need for food, and also to find long-term solutions to hunger. I’d encourage you to join us in this endeavor by selecting one of the many easy ways to show your support for this campaign; a full list of suggested actions is available at hungerawarenessweek.ca.
