Hunger on the Hill (Young Voices edition)

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

Canadian Foodgrains Bank is inviting up to 25 adults (ages 18 to 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.
