Support Hunger Awareness Week!!


Hello Friends

I hope you are enjoying this lovely Sunday!

Were you able to catch a glimpse 
of the magical Super Moon last night...
I did and WOW....it was spectacular

Tons going on around here

Did you know that May 7 - 11 
is 
Hunger Awareness Week in Canada




We want to raise awareness 
of the solvable problem of  Hunger in Canada


Many people do not realize the extent of hunger’s reach in this country. Each month, close to 900,000 Canadians are assisted by food banks, and 38% of those helped are children and youth.



The problem of hunger is a persistent one, with food banks providing comparable levels of food and other assistance 
for the better part of a decade.

Who is turning to food banks? 
There is no single, typical profile. 
The people helped include families with children, 
employed people whose wages are not sufficient to cover basic living essentials, individuals on social assistance,
 and Canadians living on a fixed income, 
including people with disabilities and seniors.

ShesConnected is pleased to partner


to help spread the word about their 


National Campaign 


On the evening of May 9th MPs

 are fasting for the day, 

and will be breaking fast on May 10th



Please tweet or email 
the Member of Parliament in your area 

Encourage him/her to submit 
fabulous chicken sandwich recipe 
so that they will have the opportunity 
to win up to $10,000 for their local Food Banks 
(2nd prize is $5000, 3rd prize is $2000)! 



Don't know your local MP, find them here and don't forget to include the #WinWithChicken hashtag 
in your tweet 
that will be used 
throughout the campaign on twitter

How fabulous would that be, directly impacting
 the hunger issue, in your own backyard



The winning recipe will be served
to over 10,000 people 
at the 20th Annual Great Canadian Chicken BBQ
in Ottawa on Canada Day
