Rethink Giving

Food banks are necessary to address the immediate needs of people living with hunger and malnutrition. However, these services can only provide short-term relief for the downstream symptoms of poverty and we need long-term solutions that go upstream to fix its root causes. That’s why this holiday season the BC Poverty Reduction Coalition ask you to rethink giving and go beyond charity. The website has lots of ideas, including a tool kit called "Share the Weight."
