EDUCATE: Week 1 of Hunger Action Month!

Hunger Action Month is a time for food banks and communities across Canada to come together and learn about food insecurity, while advocating for change and supporting our neighbours.

EDUCATE is the theme of this first full week for Hunger Action Month!

Keep an eye on our social media for updates, and join in on the conversation! We want to hear what you have to say. Share our posts and help us inform everyone about food banks, food insecurity, and the Ottawa Food Bank.

Make sure you use the hashtag #HungerActionMonth

Impossible Choices Learning / Teaching Tool​

Living with Hunger: Impossible Choices is a series of three interactive, online videos created by Food Banks Canada which illustrate how it is possible for a person in Canada to find themselves faced with poverty and experiencing food insecurity.

There are stereotypes about who experiences hunger and food insecurity. As hunger touches all demographics, it’s time that we educate ourselves on who truly benefits from the generosity of community food programs and their supporters.

For further information about the Ottawa Food Bank’s reach, programming, and operations please take a look at our most recent Year in ReviewOttawa Hunger Report, and our COVID-19 Report which covered the first year of the pandemic.
