Our group is participating in a number of events throughout the year to both raise funds for Free the Children and the projects they are organizing, and to help those in our own community who are in need through food bank drives and working with agencies such as WIN house to improve the lives of those who need our support.

In 1988, a small group of university friends wanted to re-live the fun of trick-or-treating on Halloween. The only problem was that because of their age, they were worried they would end up spooking their community a little more than the usual costumed capers. So instead of asking for candy, they decided to ask their neighbours for canned food items, which they could then donate to a local food bank. Twenty years later, the tradition has expanded to include elementary, middle school, high school and university students from all across North America!

 
The Halloween for Hunger campaign is an easy way for you to take action in the fight against poverty and hunger in your own local community. Each Halloween, thousands of young people across the United States and Canada sign up for this Free The Children campaign and trick-or-treat for tens of thousands of non-perishable food items. The food they collect is then donated to their local food banks to help fight against the problem of hunger in our communities.
 
When you sign up for Halloween for Hunger, you gain access to the resources you will need to make a huge difference, including a step-by-step guide, flyers to pass out before the big night to houses on your route, and one-on-one support from your youth programming coordinator. We also provide youth with important information about poverty, hunger and homelessness in North America as well as the opportunity to learn from Professor Jonathan White, an expert in the field and one of the original trick-or-treaters who started it all.
