Hunger on the Hill


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

Canadian Foodgrains Bank is inviting up to 25 adults to participate in our 2022 Hunger on the Hill event. COVID-19 situation permitting, we are currently seeking passionate folks to travel to Ottawa with us to learn about global hunger and to meet with MPs in person.


Expression of Interest

A registration fee of $200 is required to secure your spot, for all approved applicants.

If possible, participants are encouraged to cover their own transportation costs to and from Ottawa. All trainings, accommodations, meals and other transportation while in Ottawa will be covered (personal purchases and incidentals excluded).



  • Are you concerned about climate change and the global food system? About Canada’s role in improving food security for people around the world who experience hunger?

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

    You will get to know other Canadians who care about these issues, and connect with Foodgrains Bank staff who work in the area of public policy and engagement.

    Foodgrains Bank staff will work with participants across Canada, gathering first virtually over 2 online sessions (60-75 min each -see details below) and then live and in person in Ottawa for several days to learn more about advocacy with elected officials, and also about the links between our food systems and the issues of climate change, gender equality and food insecurity. Participants will work in small groups to meet face-to-face with MPs, with a debrief session to follow.

    We are encouraging many people to apply. However, we have limited space, and therefore cannot guarantee participation for all those who express interest. Participation will be confirmed on a rolling basis. Applications will be closed by August 7th, 2022.

    Please complete the following information if you are interested and available to participate.
