This holiday season, 1 in 8 households in Canada has something on their wish lists that simply shouldn’t be there. Fresh, healthy food shouldn’t be a gift, or a special treat. It should be something that every family in Canada can rely on every day of the year.
Food banks urgently need your help to make that a reality.
Please give a special holiday gift by December 31st. You’ll help us send fresh, healthy food wherever it’s needed most, from coast to coast to coast. And you’ll provide vital tools to food banks — from freezers to forklifts to trucks — to better serve their communities during this time of tremendous need.
Your special gift today will ensure that everyone has the nourishing food they urgently need this holiday season, and all year long.
