Manufacturers for Meals 2021 Campaign
It is hard to believe that there are 1.15 million children that go hungry every day. Although the Provincial and Federal governments are continuously working on this issue, change and support also needs to happen at the community level, that’s us.
When children live in a food insecure household they do not have the same opportunities to learn as children that live in a food secure home. Some of the effects of food insecurity are higher frequency of chronic illness, delays in socio-emotional, cognitive and motor development, poor performance on language comprehension to name a few.
We need to strive to support these children through Feed NS however we can. Let’s make a difference together.
We will focus on fund-raising until September 1st and then begin to solicit food donations in addition to cash contributions until December 10th (to minimize spoilage). As the December 10th campaign deadline approaches our volunteers (feel free to volunteer for the MFRS4MEALS organizing team!) will help you with drop-off times, or to arrange collection. All participants will be recognized so sign up today no matter how big or small your organization.
I look forward to working with you and invite you to forward this invitation to your colleagues and challenge other Nova Scotian manufacturers.
