Neighbours across Canada can have a great meal
This season, many of us may be looking forward to gathering around the table with family and friends and eating a meal made with love. But for too many people, this simply isn’t the reality. In the wake of the pandemic, families are struggling more than ever to make ends meet and to keep healthy food on the table.
But with your help, we can change that.
When you give today, you’ll help us send fresh, nutritious food wherever it’s needed most, from coast to coast to coast. You’ll also provide vital tools to local food banks — from freezers to forklifts to trucks — to better serve their communities.
Your gift today will help us set the table for neighbours and their families who are struggling with food insecurity this October.
