TOPIC: Hunger Action Month GUEST: Margo Jones, President, Kitchener-Waterloo Oktoberfest GUEST: Wendi Campbell, Executive Director, Food Bank of Waterloo Region The Fall Food & Fund Drive is essential for our Community Food Assistance Network to provide food and other essential supports needed by 1 in 20 households in Waterloo Region. 1000 high school leadership students from across the country attending the Canadian Student Leadership Conference (CSLC)  will cap their experience by raising awareness of local hunger and encouraging our community to take action.  They will be in grocery stores and neighbourhoods in Kitchener and Waterloo reminding residents of the Fall Drive and encouraging everyone to get involved by holding a food & fund drive or making donations of non-perishable food and funds.  These outstanding students will return to their home provinces and territories from their week of workshops, speakers and activities in Waterloo to take action to strengthen their own communities. 32,670 people in Waterloo Region need food support. 37% of these are children.  Every day, the Network of more than 100 agencies and programs provides 215 food hampers and 2000 community meals in addition to providing other essential support through outreach workers, counsellors and other programs.  In addition to supporting the students’ efforts on September 30th, the community is asked to organize and register their own food & fund drives.  Most needed food items include canned meat & fish, rice, dried beans, canned fruit, hot cereals, beans in sauce, canned pasta, stews & chili, tomatoes & sauce.  Each dollar donated will provide food for 3 meals.  Non-perishable food donations can be made at any fire hall, police division or grocery store.  Financial donations can be made online, by calling or visiting The Food Bank of Waterloo Region. Kick off is September 30, 10 a.m. – 12 p.m. and 1 p.m. – 3 p.m.  The Fall Food & Fund Drive runs throughout October.
