Steelworkers Humanity Fund Contributes $154,000 to 71 Food Banks Across Canada

TORONTO – United Steelworkers (USW) National Director Ken Neumann today announced the Steelworkers Humanity Fund is contributing $154,000 to 71 food banks in communities where USW members live and work.

“If food banks were not providing essential support to poor and vulnerable Canadians, poverty and its impact would be a lot more visible. The fact is that 833,000 Canadians must rely on food banks each month to put food on their tables and 3.8 million Canadians live in poverty,” said Neumann.

“Food banks can’t address the underlying causes of poverty – that’s why we need a national anti-poverty strategy. The Steelworkers union joins with others in support of the Dignity for All campaign urging the federal government to take action.”
