On October 17, Dignity for All marks the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty.
For the past four years, people across Canada have been serving up food for thought on street corners in cities across the country. Poverty activists and people passionate about human rights, are calling for a Federal Anti-Poverty Plan to eradicate poverty and hunger for the 860,000 people in Canada who use food banks each month and the millions of others struggling to get by.
This October, on the 5th anniversary of Chew on This!, more groups than ever across the country joining us as we draw attention to poverty and food insecurity in Canada. Over 80 teams, in every province and territory, will be joining the campaign by handing out Chew on This! lunch bags and materials and engaging passersby on food insecurity and the need for a national anti-poverty plan.
Check out the map below to see where Chew on This! events are taking place in 2017! Follow us on Twitter to see our fabulous volunteers’ updates and photos of their events across Canada on October 17.
