No one should go hungry, Support your local Food Bank

When it comes to the basics, food is at the top of the list. While most of us are fortunate to have enough to eat, not everyone is so lucky.

Food Bank Canada says that children make up over a third of those who rely on meals from Canadian food banks.

This year Farm Credit Canada (FCC) is running its 14th year of their ‘Drive Away Hunger’ campaign. The launch coincides with Hunger Awareness Week. From Sept. 6 until Oct. 13, 2017, FCC employees, volunteers and partners from communities across Canada will be collecting food and funds, with 100% of the proceeds going to Canadian food banks.

Anyone can join the drive by dropping off a food or cash donation at your nearest Food Bank. Or go to www.fcc-all—proposals1.sponsor.com to:Make an online donation to a food bank of your choice.

Register your school and collect food with students.

Become a partner. Raise food and funds with your business or organization.
