I Say No to hunger
Because over 882,000 Canadians turned to food banks every month in 2012, we, the undersigned, call on the Government of Canada to act now to enact policies that will help reduce hunger in Canada.
We call on the government to:
- Increase investment in affordable housing so that Canadians don’t have to choose between paying their rent or feeding their families
- Ensure adequate pensions for our most vulnerable seniors so that no senior goes hungry
- Act to address the decline in well-paying jobs so that working families can afford to feed themselves
There are solutions to hunger; the Government of Canada must act now!
