Hunger is a daily reality for millions of people,
even in your own backyard
This Halloween do something about it.
Be a hero and help hunger disappear.
formerly Halloween for Hunger,
is Free The Children’s
annual campaign to mobilize youth around local hunger issues.
Millions of people around the world, and some in our own communities, go hungry every day—many of them are children. In Canada, food bank use has gone up 20% in the last ten years.
Every October 31st, thousands of young people take action to scare local hunger and poverty. By trick-or-treating for non-perishable food items instead of just candy, or collecting canned goods at school and in their community, they help support their local food bank and raise awareness about this very important issue. They not only make a tangible contribution to their communities, but also become knowledgeable advocates for change.
In 2011 alone, over 290,000 people participated in the We Scare Hunger campaign. They donated a total of 833,648 pounds of food— enough to feed 164 families of four for a whole year!
Support local food banks and take action. Scare local hunger by trick-or-treating for non-perishable food items instead of just candy. Collect canned goods at school, work and in the community, then drop them off at your local food bank to Help Hunger Disappear®.
Be a hero and sign up.
Because you can.
We Scare Hunger is made possible with the support of Help Hunger Disappear®, Campbell Canada’s national hunger awareness and food drive program. Since 2008, Help Hunger Disappear® reminds us that we can all play a part in helping the more than 900,000 Canadians who rely on their local food banks every month.
