Kraft Canada's Food for Families program, which is supporting local food banks all across Canada.
Food bank usage in Canada has risen 26% since 2008, with 38% of it's users being children 18 and under. This statistic is so daunting, but there is hope-and I'm really excited to be telling you how you can support your local food bank right at your computer!
From now until January 31st, you can visit www.kraftassists.ca and sign your name online. You choose which food bank you'd like to support, and Kraft Canada will donate $1 to that food bank on your behalf. The best part is you can sign once a day, every day, until January 31st. The food bank with the most signatures out of the 30 who are participating will win an additional $10,000 as well!
Notes From the Cookie Jar is supporting three food banks; The Greater Vancouver Food Bank Society, Mustard Seed Food Bank in Victoria, and the Williams Lake Salvation Army. Over the next few weeks, I will be highlighting each of them in Food Revolution Fridays and telling you more about them!
But that's not all-in case you missed it, Kevin and I are going to be traveling to Vancouver Dec 4th to volunteer with the Greater Vancouver Food Bank Society and collect food during the Roger's Santa Claus parade. Come on down and say hello to us!
So far, the BC food banks over at Kraft's Food for Families have really low numbers-so let's do BC proud and get clicking! Spread the word on Twitter with the hashtag #kraftF4F, grab the logo, post about it, and most of all, go sign your name.
Every dollar counts, and the eastern provinces have a head start.
Let's show them what BC can do because most of all, no child should go hungry, especially when giving is this easy.
