Abstract:

The HungerCount study is an annual survey of Canada’s food banks: non-profit organizations without government funding that provide people in need with groceries. The HungerCount survey was first conducted in 1989 when food bank workers were beginning to recognize the extent of hunger in Canada. It has been conducted annually since 1997. We conduct the HungerCount study to gauge the progress of government in its commitment to address hunger and poverty. The year 2000 marks what was to be a significant occasion. In an all-party unanimous resolution, the House of Commons in 1989 committed to end child poverty by the year 2000. This year’s HungerCount report provides a yardstick to measure how far from the mark government has fallen from realizing that goal.
