It matters now

When you can't afford food, you can't move forward. The anxiety of not knowing where your next meal is coming from is paralyzing. The shame not being able to provide for your family isolates you from your peers. When you ask for help, you get temporary relief, but your problems don't go anywhere. That's the reality facing too many of our fellow Canadians.

We can change the story for people struggling with poverty and food insecurity. We can build places that provide healthy food, and so much more. Places where people can learn new skills, improve their health, meet new friends, and take action on the issues that affect their lives. The kind of place where people find the support they need to move forward.

Your donation to Community Food Centres Canada means more food-insecure kids have access to healthy food and the chance to develop healthy eating habits. More families have a place to go to have delicious and nutritious community meals. More isolated seniors can come together in the kitchen to learn new skills and and meet new friends. And more people struggling with poverty and food insecurity can speak out so we can change the system.
