MISSISSAUGA - Canadians across the country are celebrating World Food Day, October 16, by hosting a #HungerFree Meaningful Meal. They will bring friends together around their table, or share a meal at their favourite restaurant, and use their grocery or restaurant bill as a donation guide. In doing this, people will celebrate food they love and make a donation to provide food through World Vision's work in countries around the world.

Food is more than sustenance, there is a powerful emotional connection we have with it. Access to our favourite food provides dignity, security and plays an important role in how we connect with others.
World Vision is hoping to see 250 Meaningful Meals shared across the country to help raise enough money to provide 530 tonnes of food to vulnerable children and families in developing countries.
