Your Support Makes a Big Impact for Children
Your donations has help provide
However, there is still more to do...
Hunger and poverty have been increasing worldwide.
This has created dire situations for children and families, with 828 million people affected by hunger last year - 150 million more compared to 2019.
And that number is rising.
How Your Ongoing Support Makes a Difference
School Meals Provide Food Security and Keep Children in Schools
School meal programs are instrumental in helping improve attendance and reduce school drop-out. And knowing that their children eat a healthy meal at school, also means that parents have fewer meals to provide at home. This allows them to stretch resources to pay for other household expenses and provide necessities for the family.
This year we need your support to provide 4.3 million school meals to feed children in Canada and around the world.
Improving small scale farming helps entire communities
Your donation supports women farmers by providing climate resilient agricultural training that teaches women how to improve their farming production. They learn how to budget, how to pick and plant the right seeds and crop combinations, how to choose and apply the right fertilizer to maximize yields, and how to recognize when plants are mature to pick. When women grow more food, their communities have access to more food.
This year, your donation will help provide training for 2,087 farmers to allow them to increase their farming yields and improve their farming business.
Creating food security through food sovereignty
Your support grows gardens, including indoor gardens during the winter; supplies school meals; provides community soup kitchens; builds food forests; provides Indigenous food harvesting training, like hunting, fishing, trapping and gathering, to children and youth; and distributing wild food to community members. Your donation provides immediate relief but is also building up food systems that will feed families for generations while helping Indigenous communities re-establish food sovereignty.
With your help this year, together we can continue to support community-led solutions to re-establish food sovereignty and improve food security in Indigenous communities. Having easier and cheaper access to food is a huge step toward providing healthy food for children, their families, and all community members. With your support this year our partners in Canada hope to grow 538 gardens.
