More than three decades after the founding of Canada’s first food bank, hundreds of thousands of people need help putting food on their tables each month. We must ask ourselves why this is so. What are the factors that maintain this unacceptable problem? What actions will cut it down to size? HungerCount 2012 offers clear, hard data on food bank use, digs beyond the numbers to explore the root causes of hunger in our country, and provides recommendations to bring about real change.
