Campaign 2000 staff will visit Toronto schools during the week of Oct. 17, 2016 to engage students and teachers in discussions on child poverty and the need for a national poverty reduction strategy for Canada.

The visits coincide with this year’s “Chew on This!”  a national event led by the anti-poverty campaign Dignity for All to mark the UN’s International Day to Eradicate Poverty every Oct. 17.

The event is also designed to educate the public about widespread food bank usage in Canada and workable solutions to poverty that plagues many communities.

Campaign 2000 is co-ordinated by Family Service Toronto and is a national non-partisan coalition promoting support for the 1989 unanimous House of Commons resolution to end child poverty by the year 2000
