African children sitting on the ground and eating lunch

Nearly 1 in 3 people in the world did not have access to adequate food last year.

Join us in providing children and families with urgent food support.

Your donation will help communities face the following food challenges:

Closed schools mean more hunger

In many of our communities, families rely on school meals to help feed their children. With intermittent school closures, families struggle to fill the gap.

Parents have lost their jobs

Many parents have lost their jobs or say that their businesses have temporarily shut down. They are unable to afford enough food for their children.

"We are in a crisis. There is no food and no job."

- Julio from Bolivia

Food is hard to access

Families say that they cannot access enough food. In Indigenous communities in Canada, supply chain disruptions left grocery shelves empty for weeks. Worldwide, higher prices are making it hard to buy food.

Climate change reduces yields and income

Longer droughts and more severe flooding are combining to reduce crop yields in many of our farming communities. Lower yields mean there's less food to eat and sell.

Urgent Family Food Boxes

The Need: The pandemic has resulted in acute food insecurity due to school closures and job loses.

Your Impact: Your donation of $140 can provide four families a food hamper filled with healthy groceries.

Daily School Meals

The Need: When school's are open, there's a greater demand for school meals as families require more support to meet their children's daily nutritional needs.

Your Impact: Your donation of $175 can provide a child with one year of nutritious school meals.

Growing Family Incomes

The Need: The cyclical and unpredictable nature of agriculture mean families struggle to provide their children with regular meals all year round.

Your Impact: Your donation of $40 helps parents - especially women - branch out into activities like livestock rearing and basket weaving in addition to farming.

Traditional Foods

The Need: Food supply chain disruptions, higher prices and job losses have increased food insecurity in Indigenous communities in Canada.

The Impact: Your donation of $68 can help promote traditional activities such as food gathering and preparation.
