Share Your Story

Everyone has a story—and we want to share them

We’re hoping to raise the voices of people facing hunger by featuring stories from participants and service providers wanting to share their experience in accessing or providing food assistance.

While we know there’s no typical food bank recipient and there are many reasons a person may need food assistance, not everyone realizes that hunger can happen to anyone at any time. By sharing a wide range of stories, we hope to raise awareness and educate our community about the rise of food insecurity in Waterloo region.

If you’re interested in sharing your story, please fill out the form. You can also attach a photo of yourself to go with your story.
