October 17th is the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty. Chew on This! marks this important day each year with our nation-wide event, drawing attention to poverty in Canada and calling for action through a national plan to end poverty.

This year, Chew on This! is more important than ever!

The federal government has just released Opportunity for All, Canada’s first poverty reduction strategy. While we’re pleased to have a strategy to build on, much more work is needed to achieve our campaign’s goal of poverty eradication.

Our postcard message this year, directed to the Prime Minister, will call for a plan that is strengthened, legislated, and fully-funded in Budget 2019. We do not want this opportunity lost!

In 2018, we held the 6th annual Chew on This! event on October 17th, with more than 100 groups in 65 cities from coast-to-coast-to-coast joining in the call for a stronger national anti-poverty plan. Check out our photo gallery of 2018 events to see the campaign from St John’s to Nanaimo.

See where Chew events happened in 2018!
