It's simple – we are going hungry so they don’t have to. You are challenged to engage in a 24-hour famine to promote awareness and raise funds for food security in the DTES.
Because we should and can.
To raise critical funds to fight food insecurity in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside.
Access to healthy low-cost food in the Downtown Eastside is limited and often unattainable for those who struggle to make a living wage.
Poverty directly affects the quality of food individuals consume. Food items with the most nutritional benefits tend to be the most expensive to purchase, leaving low-income families and individuals to go without necessities such as fruits, vegetables, and proteins (Statistics Canada).
