Help scare hunger in your community this Halloween!

Not having enough food on the table, not eating good food, and starving. These predicaments may sound crazy, but it is reality for a lot of people around the world. And I don’t just mean people in the developing world, but I mean even in our own backyard. According to the Daily Bread Food Bank, in 2012, there were 1,123,500 visits to GTA food banks. This is completely horrifying and sad.

Hunger stats in Canada:

-14% of food banks ran out of food in 2012

-Canada has 3,000 food programs and more than 800 food banks

-From 2008 to 2012 there was a 31% increase in the use of food banks

-One in five parents said they skipped meals to ensure there was enough food for their children

We Scare Hunger:

But instead of just feeling sorry for all the people going hungry in your community, you can take action. We scare hunger is a campaign that helps eliminate hunger in many communities. Along with many other children across Canada and the UK you can give up candy and ask for non-perishable food instead. This Halloween, I will be going out for Halloween not in hopes of getting as much candy as possible, but getting a lot of canned foods to help people in my community.

Here is a video about We Scare Hunger:
