Hunger Awareness Week

Hunger Awareness Week is about raising awareness of the solvable problem of hunger in Canada. Food Banks Canada, along with its provincial members and food banks across the country, are asking all Canadians to mark Hunger Awareness Week and to Give It Up for Hunger - to make a positive impact on the issue of hunger across the country.

*Give It Up for Hunger* - Close to 900,000 Canadians have relied on food banks this past month. Know what it’s like to have food out of reach by challenging yourself to give up your lunches or a food staple for the week.

*Give a Shout* - Share your experience- go online and show your support via Facebook, Twitter or blogging or wear a Hunger Awareness Week sticker.

*Give It Out* - Donate food, funds or your time to a local food bank.

Join the Greater Vancouver Food Bank Society staff and volunteers at the Vancouver Art Gallery {North Side} on Monday, May 7th  from 7am - 3pm to help kickoff Hunger Awareness Week. Hope to see you there!
