WE SCARE HUNGER
Thirteen percent of Canadians are in a state of food insecurity, which means they are unable to access a sufficient quantity of affordable, nutritious food. Without enough food, many people feel the effects of short-term hunger, like headaches, nausea and the inability to concentrate.
Each month, over 850,000 Canadians require help from food banks—more than one third of these individuals are children and youth. People seeking food assistance come from all walks of life. Employment is no guarantee that someone will never struggle to provide enough food for their family.
Clarkson’s WE charity is running its FIFTH annual food drive. Homeroom classes will be collecting donations from October 10th to November 2nd. Parents, teachers, students and community members are all invited to help us with our food drive campaign. Everything collected will be sent to the Mississauga Food bank, helping those in our community. Every contribution, big or small, makes a huge difference.
The following items are what food banks need most:
Rice, Flour, Tomato Sauce, Canned Meat (chicken, corned beef), Canned Fish (tuna, salmon), Soup or Stew, Pasta, Canned fruits, Canned vegetables, Canned or Dry Beans, Peanut Butter, Cereal, Baby food, Baby diapers, 100% fruit juice, Canned or Powdered Milk
