ChewOnThis! #WeNeedAPlan

ChewOnThis! On October 17th, we're marking the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty by spreading the word that #WeNeedAPlan to end poverty in Canada.

Despite urging from Committees in the House of Commons, the Senate and the United Nations, Canada has no national anti-poverty plan. We have no strategy in place for the 1 in 7 people in Canada who are living in poverty.

In Canada, 900,000 people use food banks each month, 3 million people are food insecure in this country and yet poverty has not been made a prominent election issue. Together, let's make it one!

On October 6th, over 50 communities across Canada took this message to the streets. NOW we want to spread the message across even further. Sign up to this Thunderclap, on October 17th help us spread the word that #WeNeedAPlan to end poverty in Canada!
