Food Banks Canada, along with its provincial members and food banks across the country, are asking all Canadians to mark Hunger Awareness Week and to Give It Up for Hunger - to make a positive impact on the issue of hunger across the country.
What does giving it up for hunger really mean? It’s as easy as three simple steps:
Give It Up for Hunger – Close to 900,000 Canadians have relied on food banks this past month. Know what it’s like to have food out of reach by challenging yourself to give up your lunches or a food staple for the week.
Give a Shout - Share your experience- go online and show your support via Facebook, Twitter or blogging or wear a Hunger Awareness Week sticker
Give It Out - Donate food, funds or your time to a local food bank.
