Together we can help alleviate hunger.
Over 800,000 Canadians rely on food banks each month. We know hunger is a complex issue, but Campbell Canada is helping by doing what we can as a food company to ease the impact – even if it’s for just one meal. We’re also raising awareness and inspiring Canadians to get involved.
In 2008, we launched our hunger awareness and food drive campaign: Help Hunger Disappear®. Since then, it has helped drive our donations to Food Banks Canada and encouraged Canadians to get involved and make donations to their local food banks.
This year, from April 1 to May 31, for each purchase of 4 Campbell’s®, Pepperidge Farm® and/or V8® products in one qualifying transaction at participating Sobeys, Metro, Federated Co-op and Overwaitea Food stores, Campbell Company of Canada will donate the monetary equivalent of one (1) meal ($0.33) to Food Banks Canada, up to a maximum of 150,000 meals. $1 helps provide 3 meals (3 lbs of food) secured by Food Banks Canada on behalf of local member food banks.
THE Number of Canadians who rely on food banks is up 26% since 2008.
