Supporting local food banks is more important than ever as visits to food banks across Canada continue to increase. Last year in March alone, there were nearly 1.5 million visits made, and among those food bank users in Canada, 33.1% are children, 45.4% are single adult households and 8.9% are seniors. Food insecurity can affect anyone at any time, so join us by paying what you want while giving these Canadians what they need.
“No matter how small your donation may seem, it can still make a significant impact,” shared Kirstin Beardsley, Chief Executive Officer, Food Banks Canada. “Food banks across the country are relying on donations now more than ever, which is why we appreciate our partnership with 7-Eleven and all those who graciously support the Slurpee Name Your Price Day event on September 21.”
