About Purolator Tackle Hunger
The Purolator Tackle Hunger (PTH) program helps raise awareness about hunger and collect food and cash donations for local food banks across Canada. According to Food Banks Canada’s 2018 HungerCount report, saw Canadians visit food banks over 1.1 million times in the month of March alone. Sadly over one-third of those visiting food banks were children – while they only represent 20 per cent of the Canadian population. Since its inception in 2003, the Purolator Tackle Hunger program has helped deliver the equivalent of more than 12 million pounds of food to food banks across Canada.
