Food Banks need our help
Food banks are an important method of addressing this need. Each month, over 900,000 people turn to food banks for help; more than one-third are children and youth.
The people who visit food banks come from all backgrounds. They include families with children, employed people whose low wages do not cover basic living essentials, individuals on social assistance, and Canadians living on a fixed income, including seniors and people with disabilities.
The need for food security does not end because we are on holiday and enjoying the summer sun. Take some time and help your local food-bank, either by volunteering or donating food or money. Every little bit helps.
