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.
People across the country have pushed for years for a National Anti-Poverty Plan to eradicate poverty and hunger for the 1 in 7 people in Canada who are living in poverty. This year, we finally have the promise of a plan.
Now we need to make sure the voices of those with lived experience of poverty are included and that the plan will be rooted in human rights.
In Canada, over 850,000 people use food banks each month and 1 in 8 families struggle daily to put food on the table. Let's make sure they are invited to the table!
Dignity for All (DfA) is a non-partisan campaign that is co-led by two charitable organizations, Canada Without Poverty and Citizens for Public Justice. ChewOnThis! is an annual campaign coordinated by DfA to mark the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty, and encourage the federal government to take action to end poverty in Canada.
