October 17 is the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty, and Dignity for All is asking food bank, meal program, shelter workers/volunteers and social justice advocates to add their voice and unique experiences to a call for a national poverty elimination strategy.

Here is what will happen:

Volunteers will be handing out lunch bags to passers-by and politicians with the words “Chew on This” printed on the outside, and an apple and a postcard on the inside. The postcard will have stats/info about food insecurity and an option to sign and send it to parliament as a call for a national poverty elimination strategy.

If you’re able to help out from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on the 17th, please email Distribution of the lunch bags will take place at the Brighouse SkyTrain station and the Minoru public library. Thanks! There’s more information about the event here.
