OAKVILLE, Ont. — A staggering number of Canadians – close to 900,000 – rely on food banks each month; 38 per cent of those turning to food banks are children and youth.
SCA, the makers of the Tork brand of away-from-home paper products, is proud to be a Supporter of Food Banks of Canada, the national charitable organization representing and supporting the food bank community across Canada.
SCA’s partnership also includes sponsorship of the charity’s annual Hunger Awareness Week campaign, a week-long initiative that challenges Canadians to learn more about the issue of hunger and to take action to make a difference for those in need.
“SCA’s Tork brand is a supporter of Food Banks of Canada and its Hunger Awareness campaign because we believe in the organization’s goal and its strategy for accomplishing that goal,” said Deanne MacDonald, Marketing Manager, SCA Canada. “Many of our customers are in the food services and hospitality industry and we feel we can help to bring awareness for the growing need to support local food banks. We are proud to support this program, which has become essential to a growing number of Canadians.”
“Food Banks of Canada relies on its partners to help generate much needed funds and awareness,” said Katharine Schmidt, Executive Director, Food Banks of Canada. ”We thank SCA for their support and look forward to working with them on a number of exciting initiatives throughout the year.”
This year’s Hunger Awareness Week runs from May 6 – 11 and offers three ways for Canadians to get involved: Give It Up, Give a Shout, and Give It Out. To learn more, visit www.foodbankscanada.ca
