There’s nothing normal about half of Canadians living paycheque to paycheque.

But this is not a reality that we have to accept. People in Canada need policies that offer immediate relief, not distant promises.

That’s why Food Banks Canada is calling for a Groceries and Essentials Benefit to provide Canadians the support they need today, not tomorrow. This is the best way to ensure that every Canadian can afford their daily cost of living.

Join us and tell your local representatives that hunger doesn’t wait, so we can’t either.

Policies that make a difference

At Food Banks Canada, we believe that no one should go hungry. Yet, even in this country, almost 2 million people visited food banks in one month.

That’s why we work tirelessly to advocate for policy solutions that counter hunger and its root causes: poverty and low incomes. We want to eliminate the need for food banks one day, once and for all. Join us and help work toward our vision of a Canada where no one goes hungry.
