How to make your food bank drive betterBC is one of the most generous provinces in Canada in terms of how much we give to charity. Yet, we’ve had one of the highest poverty rates for the last 15 years! It is clearly time for a different approach. That’s why we invite you to take part in a “charity intervention” to help shift people’s thinking to include justice. You can use our Share the Weight: An upstream alternative (or supplement) to your Food Bank Drive lesson plan to engage with classmates, students, or co-workers in a letter-writing campaign that is fun and has weight to it.
