Our global partners are working hard to provide fresh groceries and hot meals to the hungry.
Solving world hunger could end a myriad of problems - including poverty. We’ve helped thousands of individuals and families all around the world. But there is so much more to do.
We not only want to stop the famine and struggles in a handful of countries, but we envision a world where every struggling community has access to free groceries and hot meals for the most vulnerable.
We cannot do this without you.
Hunger and malnutrition are the biggest risks to health worldwide - greater than AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis combined.
More than 75 percent of the world's malnourished children (122 million of 155 million) live in countries affected by conflict.
20 million people are currently at risk of famine in South Sudan, Somalia, Yemen and Nigeria.
The sad reality is that there are many ways that hunger can pull and trap people in a vicious cycle of poverty. Without food, children can’t grow or attend school, and when they become adults their lack of education limits them from finding work. Those who are malnourished also simply don’t have the energy to work or study.
But this problem is also much closer to home here in Canada. According to a 2019 report by Hunger Count shows that 34.1% of Food Bank users are children despite only representing 19.4% of the population.
We may be halfway across the world. No matter what we do, we cannot stop the fighting and the reasons that they are starving in the first place.
We can feed them, though. And we don’t have to just drop off food packages, we can create a sustainable model for entire communities where they can get fresh food every single day, whether that’s fresh bread or warm meals.
The team behind Share a Meal has over 27 years of experience in providing food, building bakeries/kitchens, and feeding thousands of people every single day. Thanks to our supporters we have delivered 25,000+ hot meals to the vulnerable across the GTA in 2021.
