The Mustard Seed wants to build awareness in our community about national, provincial and local hunger statistics as well as fund raise for the Food Bank and programs offered breaking the cycle of poverty in individuals and families lives.
With the cost of food rising, more Canadians are faced with food insecurity, and food banks across the country are unable to keep up with the demand. The summer months are especially strenuous on food banks, as children are no longer in school and parents are unable to utilize school-based meal programs. The Mustard Seed will join with food banks across Canada in the Every Plate Full food and fundraising drive, with the goal of filling the plates of every hungry Canadian. Through the efforts of food banks within this summer campaign, we are bringing Canada together to make a difference.
