This Halloween...

Don't Let Hunger Haunt Your Neighbourhood

Putting the scare on hunger since 2002

Give 'em something good to eat!


Young Canadians are Hungry

No student should have to choose between meals or textbooks.  And yet, that's exactly what's happening. 1 in 5 Canadian students isn't sure where they'll get their next meal. You can build a confident and food secure campus by participating in Trick or Eat. Our inclusive food future starts, with you, today.

How it Works

Trick or Eat is Meal Exchange’s annual, student-led, national event dedicated to helping the 40% of Canadian post-secondary students who experience food insecurity.

On Halloween, instead of candy, thousands of Trick or Eaters from communities across Canada will go door to door to collect food for campus food organizations, and funds to support the work of students to continue to advocate for good food for all.

You can participate today by donating or joining a team! 

"Food is practically synonymous with the university experience: bowls of ramen, cups of Kraft dinner... Except that norm, that “oh, this is just the starving student thing, ha ha ha,” masks a concerning problem, one that only deepens as the new semester wears on and student loans run short."
