Local partnerships are a huge part of what allows The Salvation Army to help over 1.9 million people each year. The Salvation Army in French Creek, B.C., is giving clients healthier options thanks to a new commercial cooler and a partnership with @ThriftyFoods, who send fresh produce and perishable items to The Salvation Army.

Would you rather pay the rent for the month but go hungry, or buy groceries and face eviction? For thousands of Canadians living in poverty, they may have to make a similar decision this month. There’s no such thing as a simple choice when you live in poverty.

It’s always heartwarming to see youth working together to give back and make a difference. Last Friday, two local schools in Prince Rupert, B.C., brought hand-painted bowls to serve soup to the community. For a small donation, the public could enjoy a warm lunch and keep their one-of-a-kind bowl. Thank you to the students of Annunciation School and Charles Hays Secondary School for Giving Hope...

Pregnant and new to the country, Peipei was unsure of her next steps. As her due date came closer, Peipei turned to The Salvation Army’s Bethany Hope Centre in Ottawa for help. From joining a pregnancy circle to cooking classes, these programs helped her stay positive and gain confidence through her journey to motherhood. “I come here often,” Peipei laughed. “They have everything for you here.”

Providing a family with a food hamper isn’t a hand out, it’s a hand-up. 850,000+ Canadians utilize food bank services each month; they make the difference between going to bed with food in their stomach and going to bed hungry. Food banks are there to offer assistance and to give vulnerable Canadians the support they need in hard times.
