The Greater Blackville Resource Center (GBRC) invites everyone to join them in observing the 2018 Hunger Awareness Week from 17th to 21st of September 2018. If you’ve ever thought that Canadians can never go hungry, then you should think again. Many people in Canada, including some parts of New Brunswick, go without food for hours and even days, not to mention that some are homeless.

The Hunger Awareness Program seeks to raise awareness about the problem of hunger across Canada. Food banks organizations in Canada are making an appeal to everyone to help solve the issue of hunger, which experts perceive to be solvable. The hunger awareness week is also practiced in other parts of the world, including the United States of America. Participants donate food and are educated about the causes of hunger and the possible solutions. Donations are not specified, and you can contribute as much as you want.

This event will be opened from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at Holy Trinity Anglican Church Hall on September 17, 2018. If you plan to donate food on September 18th, visit Saint Raphael’s Catholic Church Hall. On Wednesday, September 19th, the event will be held in Saint Andrew’s United Church Hall, which is located at 143 Main Street in Blackville. The GBRC will have their annual general meeting on the 20th of September, beginning relatively late when compared to other days; 7:00 p.m. The AGM will be held at Voice of Hope Ministries, which is located at 12073 Route 8 Highway, Blackville.

Local communities and churches have been at the forefront of creating awareness about the hunger awareness program. Blackville is a small Canadian village located southwest of Miramichi River in Northumberland, New Brunswick. This village is 40 kilometers away from Miramichi. People in and around Miramichi can consult Blackville Foodland or Miramichi Adult Learning Inc. for further information.
