Hunger Action Month

 

Help us build a future without hunger

This September, you can #FeedChange in your community via 4 key actions:

Thank you to our Hunger Action Month sponsors for helping #FeedChange!

Educate

There are many myths and misunderstandings that surround both the clients that rely on food banks and the root causes of hunger.  In order to make the dream of a hunger-free Ontario a reality, it’s important that all Ontarians learn more about the reality of food insecurity in our province.

Advocate

Hunger is a symptom of poverty. Food banks exist across this province not because of a lack of food, but because many individuals do not have access to a sufficient income that allows them to afford all of their basic necessities. Long-term policy solutions are key to not only ending hunger, but alleviating poverty – but these require time and collaboration from community leaders and all levels of government. Read our recommendations for change and find out how to help make this change a reality below!

Actions

Volunteer

You can lend your time and talents to your local food bank in many ways, including:

  • Getting a group of co-workers together for a food drive or fundraiser
  • Using your skills (or learning new ones) to help advance their mission
  • Making a weekly commitment to sort food
  • Attending one of their many events happening during Hunger Action Month!

For Hunger Action Month, we’ve profiled some superstar volunteers from across the province in our Volunteer Spotlight!

While we work towards long-term change, we also want to ensure that people in need have access to food today. More than two-thirds of the food we distribute is fresh or frozen, including produce, meat, milk and eggs. Join with us and donate to help feed Ontario – every $1 you give provides 3 meals to someone facing hunger.

Bonus: If you donate to Feed Ontario during the week of September 22-29, your donation will be generously matched by the Chicken Farmers of Ontario. This means every $1 you donate will provide the equivalent of 6 meals to someone in need.

There are also many amazing partner campaigns running during Hunger Action Month, giving you many different ways to join with us to feed Ontario.
