Hunger Action Month
Hunger Action Month is returning once again in September and will run throughout the entire month.
We are again building upon the four pillars of Educate, Advocate, Volunteer and Donate.
It has been a challenging year for everyone in food banking but we hope that each of you will join in on this campaign to help amplify our collective voice. Participation on a small or large scale will help create a cohesive, strong voice across the country.
Week 1: Educate
This week we will be focusing on key hunger and highlighting the Impossible Choices that Canadians face with hunger
Week 2: Advocate
This week we will be focusing on long-term solutions and policy changes
Week 3: Volunteer
This week we will be focusing on the importance of volunteers to our food bank
Week 4: Donate
This week we will be focusing on food and fund donations and our local/provincial partnerships

While CERB and the eviction moratorium provided some relief, many tenants now face unaffordable rent arrears and repayment plans, putting significant stress on already tight budgets. As a result, more people will turn to food banks and are at an increased risk of eviction and homelessness.
Tell your MPP: Don’t let the COVID-19 health crisis also become a housing crisis. Implement a rent relief or forgiveness program to assist tenants facing eviction!
