Hunger In Canada
Each year, over 4 million people in Canada are forced to choose between healthy food and other critical expenses. Rising poverty and food costs make it harder to eat enough and to eat well.
Across the country, food agencies struggle to keep up with this increased demand.
LIVING WITH HUNGER
Living with hunger, without access to affordable, nutritious food is a crisis in this country. Healthy food is a human right and one of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. The affects of hunger go deeper than just lacking in nutrition. Hunger affects all aspects of people's lives, from mental and physical health to education and overall wellbeing.
Living With Hunger
Canada is facing a hunger crisis. The number of people living without affordable nutritious food keeps rising. The effects of hunger go deeper than just lacking in nutrition. Hunger affects all aspects of people's lives, from mental and physical health to education and overall wellbeing.
There are a staggering number of children in Canada who lack access to healthy food and nutrition. 1 in 6 Canadian kids are affected by food insecurity. Hunger in childhood is linked to an increase in conditions like depression and asthma, and affects kids' ability to learn and develop.
At MAZON Canada, we believe that the first step in ending the hunger crisis is giving good people the resources they need to feed their neighbours. That's why MAZON Canada supports effective, efficient projects that give people in need the most important fuel for building better lives: food.
