    This Hunger Awareness Week - Voice Your Support
This is a dedicated week each year where we work to raise public awareness of hunger in Canada.  Our goal is to eliminate the stigma associated with food bank use, and increase the understanding that many people have at some point in their lives needed a little extra help when misfortune has struck.
That is why we encourage you to “Share your story. Voice your Support” by posting your stories and solutions on our story wall 
Don’t know what to share?  Here are some examples…
  • A story about how hunger has affected your community
  • A short message about what you and your neighbours can do to help those in your community
  • Post a photo about your experience at a food bank
Need an incentive to tell your story?  How does $1,000 worth of food sound?
Well to be clear, you won’t receive the $1,000 worth of food but the food bank of your choice might.  At the close of Hunger Awareness Week, Food Banks Canada will select one post from the wall, and donate the equivalent of $1,000 worth of food to the selected poster’s Canadian food bank of choice.

So what are you waiting for?  Raise your voice and share your story today
To get you started, here are a few inspiring stories that we’d like to share with you…
