Feeding Families

Did you know that the number of food insecure individuals in Canada has nearly doubled since 2018? Because of the Covid-19 pandemic and subsequent economic downturn, today there’s close to a staggering 9 million food insecure men, women, and children nationwide. That amounts to more than 1 in 7 Canadians; this could easily be a close friend, a colleague, a neighbour, or a loved one. 

That’s why The Rebel Mama, B12Give, and Clean Plates Canada  have come together to develop the Feeding Families campaign. We’re addressing the issue of hunger in the GTA by delivering healthy and nourishing meals directly (and safely) to households suffering from food insecurity.

The Feeding Families campaign aims to deliver enough prepared food to feed a family of 4 (providing both meat and vegetarian options) during this holiday season and beyond.

We’re using B12Give’s circular food economy to redistribute delicious meals prepared by the good people at Clean Plates Canada; they'll be safely delivered to those in need by B12Give founder, Tony Colley  . Feeding Families meal packages are gluten/dairy/nut free to ensure accessibility to all and cost $40 to prepare, package, and deliver. 

Our goal is to raise $5,000 before Friday, December 18, 2020, to ensure at least 125 families have nutritious and lovingly prepared meals to enjoy this holiday season. 

But we won’t stop there! As you can see, our long-term goal is to raise $25,000

With that amount, Feeding Families will be able to prepare and deliver 2,500 meals to food insecure households across the GTA. Our first deliveries will dispatch during the week of December 20, 2020.

This is an ongoing issue demanding ongoing action, so the more money we raise, the more families we'll feed.

Our hope is that 625 gracious donors will donate $40 to our campaign, or 1,000 supporters will donate $25, or 2500 generous souls will donate $10, to help us reach our goal. Regardless of the amount, all donations make an impact and we thank you for your support!

100% of GoFundMe contributions will be allocated to the direct purchase, preparation, and delivery of our Feeding Families packages. We plan to keep this initiative ongoing for as long as we can.

Let’s start Feeding Families in the GTA!
