Hunger on the Hill

Join us to learn and advocate for an end to hunger!

Canadian Foodgrains Bank is inviting up to 25 young adults (age 18-30)  to travel to Ottawa with us to learn about global hunger and meet MP’s in person to ask for change.

Join us to learn more about the importance of advocacy in addressing the major challenge of hunger and climate change.

Are you concerned about climate change and the global food system? Have you wondered about Canada’s role in improving food security for people around the world who experience hunger? Would you like to make a difference?

Apply today to participate in our Spring 2024 Young Voices training and advocacy event, from Saturday, April 27th  – Wednesday, May 1st, 2024.

  • Participants will work in small groups to meet face-to-face with MPs during the live and in-person event in Ottawa (April 27-May 1)
