A comprehensive report on hunger and food bank use in Canada, and recommendations for change

Choices, Choices

While many of us are free to choose any menu item at our favourite restaurant, relishing the pleasure and freedom of dining out, far too many Canadians are unable to afford even to eat in. For the 863,492 people who accessed a food bank in March this year, choices take a very different shape. Instead of deciding whether they will have the short ribs or the chicken wings, they must decide whether to buy groceries or pay the rent. No one should have to make such a choice.
