About Trick or eat
Trick or Eat® is a youth-led national event that puts a new spin on the annual night of giving – Halloween. Instead of candy, thousands of Trick or Eaters across the country raise money online and go door to door to collect non-perishable food items for local food agencies. We also raise awareness about hunger in Canada through household flyers, educational materials and online resources.
#TrickOrEat Tweet Up: Wednesday, October 29, 2-3pm EST
The Meal Exchange team and network has been feverishly tweeting all month using #TrickOrEat to "share the scare" about rising hunger in Canada and to raise voices about long-term solutions for food security. On Wednesday, we're hosting an inaugural #TrickOrEat Tweet Up!
We're excited to be featuring renowned food activist and writer, Wayne Roberts; as well as Canada Research Chair in Global Human Security, and the mind behind Feeding 9 Billion and #foodcrisis, Evan Fraser as panelists.

This year’s Trick or Eat is kicking off! All of the organizers are locked in and are already planning their part in what will undoubtedly be a wildly successful event. Every year on Halloween, Trick or Eat participants go door-to-door in their communities, collecting food and funds for local food agencies. But this year’s campaign hopes to add something to the tradition: a national discussion on hunger. In addition to collecting non-perishable foods, Trick or Eat participants will be collecting opinions, answers to one not-so-simple question: “With hunger in Canada on the rise, what can Canadians do to end it?”
