Understanding the issues

We live in a wealthy country, but millions of Canadians can’t afford the food they need. Learn more and find out what you can do to help.

Getting involved

Join Canadians from coast to coast in fighting for a healthy and inclusive Canada where everyone can access food with dignity. 

Too many Canadians are being left behind

Poverty and food insecurity affect millions of Canadians. And people often feel shame and stigma when they ask for help. Individuals who can’t afford healthy food suffer more from physical and mental health problems. As inequality grows, our communities are becoming more isolated and fragmented. That affects us all. We need to take action.
 

A movement for change

We’re proving that building dignified Community Food Centres and programs can significantly improve the health and well-being of low-income individuals, and help communities thrive.
