“It’s the food drive that brought students together. They are very proud of what we have done. It’s created a history, a tradition, a legacy.”
It takes a real hero to stand up to hunger.
Millions around the world go hungry every day, even in our own backyard. This Halloween, hold a food drive in your school or community, or trick-or-treat for non-perishable food items instead of just candy. Then, drop them off at your local food bank to help stop hunger in its tracks.
Why should you
Hunger affects people from all walks of life. They are your neighbours, the people you pass on the street or even friends. Most people never expect to have to go to a food bank. But when faced with unemployment, poverty or family crisis, many find themselves having to turn to their communityfood bank to feed their family. Some people need support over longer periods, but most require help only occasionally or for a short period of time. A food package may make the difference for a family trying to get back on their feet after a crisis. It can mean that a child doesn’t go to bed hungry. It’s time to be heroes and stop hunger in its tracks.
