You can help end hunger!
Did you know that in 2021, 15.9% of households in the ten provinces experienced some level of food insecurity in the previous 12 months? That amounts to 5.8 million people, including almost 1.4 million children under the age of 18, living in food-insecure households. When you donate, you help feed your neighbours in need.
Join us in the fight against food insecurity.
