Action Against Hunger’s vision is of a world without hunger

For a Canada free from child hunger

 

THE NEED: A CANADA FREE FROM HUNGER 

Four million Canadians, about 13% of households, have inadequate or insecure access to food. This prevents children from reaching their full potential. It’s unacceptable.

 

THE IDEA: GROW A GENERATION NUTRITION

With your help, we can create a country free from child hunger and grow a generation of Canadian youth empowered to make healthy nutrition choices.

 

JOIN THE MOVEMENT: #BROWNBAGIT

Pack a nutritious lunch this fall and donate the money you save so every kid can eat a healthy lunch.

For inspiration, check out the simple lunch recipes that we’ll share weekly from top chefs this fall.

You donation will support our mobile garden education project which teaches Canadian students from coast-to-coast-to-coast how to grow and cook their own nutritious food.

How can your group get involved? Check out our handy guide for workplaces, classrooms, families, or any group that wants to #brownbagit!
