How You Can Help
Hunger affects people from all walks of life — children and families, seniors, employed people, and people living on disability and other fixed income sources.
Say NO to Hunger by taking our pledge at www.saynotohunger.ca.
As the national organization dedicated to reducing hunger in the short-term and long-term, Food Banks Canada has developed a number of ways to make it easier for individuals, corporations, and other organizations to get involved. Explore the pages in this section to find out how you can help.
Together, we can reduce hunger in Canada and make a real difference in the lives of many Canadians. Whatever you can do to help — whether you make a financial donation, volunteer your time, arrange a large-scale donation of food or goods from your company, donate your unwanted handheld device, organize a food drive, educate others, or advocate on behalf of low income Canadians — your contribution is important.
For every $1 you donate, Food Banks Canada is able to acquire and share $20 worth of food. Your contribution makes a real difference in the lives of people in your community — and across Canada.
Recognizing the importance of community and volunteer assistance, most provinces have enacted legislation that protects people who help others, including those who donate food, from liability. These laws are informally known as Good Samaritan Laws.
