On April 8, 2020, Campaign 2000 released their 2020 Manitoba Report Card, outlining child and family poverty in our province.
“The COVID 19 pandemic is one of the greatest challenges we have ever faced, and Manitoba families need help now more than ever to ensure no child goes hungry,” said Keren Taylor-Hughes. “We feed 25,000 kids every month but now school and daycare closures have ended access to daily food for hungry kids – and demand has gone up 30%. We need the Government of Manitoba to help us feed kids today, and to invest in a provincial school breakfast program to improve the health and academic outcomes of Manitoba’s children and their families in the future.” – Keren Taylor-Hughes, CEO Harvest.
