Deliver a better tomorrow for a neighbour in need.

Most Canadians are fortunate to enjoy an exceptional quality of life. However, did you know that in 2019 food banks saw an average of 1.1 million visits per month? One third of these people are children. Right here in Canada.

In 2003, Purolator employees decided to take action by creating Purolator Tackle Hunger – an initiative that’s all about people helping people. Since then, this employee-lead grassroots initiative has helped deliver more than 13 million pounds of food to families across the country.

But there are more Canadians to feed and more meals to deliver.

We can’t tackle hunger alone. We invite you to join us in the Purolator Tackle Hunger program. After all, even one family struggling to put food on the table is one family too many.

What does hunger look like in Canada?

The number of Canadians who rely on their local food banks is staggering. We’re actively working to change it, by delivering food and resources with the help of our Purolator Tackle Hunger partners, and Canadians like you.

June is Purolator Tackle Hunger Month!

Purolator Tackle Hunger week has grown… we are now tackling hunger all month long!

Since 2003 more than 10,000 Purolator employees, customers, and partners have joined Canadians from coast to coast to raise awareness about hunger in Canada, and to collect food and funds for food banks.

Purolator Tackle Hunger Month June 1-30

In 2019 Purolator Tackle Hunger Week became Purolator Tackle Hunger Month. Throughout the month of June, Purolator employees will be working with their partners and customers to raise awareness and donations to help alleviate food insecurity across the country.

All of the donations raised during Purolator Tackle Hunger Month stay in the community where they were raised to benefit the local food bank.
