With the downturn of the economy we are now facing a crisis in terms of food for those that need some extra help. In an article by the CBC:

 

The HungerCount 2015 report compiled by Food Banks Canada says 852,137 people, including 305,366 children, accessed a food bank in this country during March, a slight increase over March of last year.

Usage in Alberta is up by almost 83 per cent since March 2008 — right before the start of the global financial crisis — when the number of people turning to food banks was at an all-time low across the country.

While asking for increased donations is not sustainable, I think it’s time we all gave it a shot. And to that effect, let me link to this funny and informative video on how to donate to a food bank properly.

That’s right, cold hard cash. It’s easier and cost effective. And the good news is that you can even do it online!  Go to the Alberta food banks and make a donation today! You might just stop a toddler from going hungry today!
