Hunger does not discriminate against color, gender, age, race or immigration status

“Food matters to all human beings; it doesn’t discriminate against the young, old, white, black, male or female. Food brings people together from all walks of life; it is a symbol of unity and love.  I share my meals and time with family all the time, I feel a sense of unity all the time we eat together.  When one prepares food for others it shows they care for them. According to health Canada, recent immigrants are food insecure than non-immigrant households, that is 12.6 percent of recent immigrant compared to 7.5 percent of the non-immigrant households. This may escalate higher because Canada receives approximately 250,000 permanent residents each year. Food insecurity among the immigrants is caused by broader economic and social circumstances, many African immigrants struggle to make ends meet ,however positive experiences is shared on community-based food programs.  Food banks serve approximately 56,000 people each month, an increasing number from immigrants.” –  Doreen Bwisa
