The impact of our work is seen across the country. To date, our programs have been run in more than 100 communities across Canada raising more than $5 million worth of food to address student and community hunger while equipping students with key leadership and community engagement skills. Meal Exchange envisions a country where everyone has access to affordable, healthy and sustainable food; the students involved with our work share this vision, and are highly engaged, working to build a strong movement that empowers young people to take leadership roles in their communities to combat student hunger.
