Why We Support Outreach For Hunger
Hunger is a serious problem for thousands of Canadians. In local communities throughout the country, these Canadians are simply unable to provide food for themselves, despite their best efforts. 1 in 7 Canadians live in poverty, which is 4.9 Million people who struggle everyday.
Circumstances such as unemployment, single parenthood, and very low wages place many Canadians below the poverty line. Since 1980 earnings in for the least wealthy Canadians fell by 20%. As a result, many are forced to turn to charitable organizations for emergency assistance. A large percentage of hungry people are children, for whom poor nutrition can have a devastating effect on education, health and well being for the rest of their lives. 3 Million Canadian children don’t know where their next meal is coming from.
Help Outreach For Hunger
Outreach for Hunger is a member of the Ontario Association of Food Banks and is always in need of donations and volunteers to help local families in need. They are a non profit that is supported by community generosity. Their goal is to provide meals to Canadian families in crisis.
