The Yellow Bags are back!
Target Hunger 2021
Local food banks look forward to filling the shelves again during this year’s city wide food drive, Target Hunger
The citywide Target Hunger campaign will take place on Saturday, June 12th, and collectively, residents of Lethbridge and area are expected to contribute 50,000 pounds of food that will help to restock the shelves at Interfaith Food Bank and Lethbridge Food Bank during a very quiet time of the summer season and during the pandemic. Financial contributions are also gratefully accepted.
This year, we are making an urgent appeal to residents in all multi-family dwellings in Lethbridge to help feed Lethbridge this summer by allowing a Food Bank bin in your lobby or the collection of Target Hunger bags in your building. We are challenging you to find a champion within your Condo, Town House complex or Apartment building, who wants to work with us.
Food Banks Canada reports that nearly 65% of Canadians believe that hunger will become a serious problem because of COVID-19. Given that there were over 1 million visits to food bank one month prior to the pandemic, a growth in hunger and food insecurity is being closely monitored by the food bank network.
Representatives from each food bank encourage community members to take advantage of opportunities to give, as individual Canadians can help reduce hunger year-round by making food or financial donations, or by giving of their time. Those interested in volunteering with Target Hunger 2021 are encouraged to connect with either food bank.
