We are challenging all CUPE locals to assist us in supporting the Community Food Sharing Association! CUPE Newfoundland Labrador has pledged to donate $1,000.
Please consider making a donation to the CFSA warehouse that was recently claimed by fire, destroying hundreds of thousands of dollars of food.

About the Community Food Sharing Association (CFSA)
It’s natural in a privileged society to think hunger can’t affect our community. But it does. Today, right now, in Newfoundland and Labrador, there are thousands of people who don’t know where their next meal is coming from. They are adults living in your neighbourhood, in your community. Many of them are working in low-paying jobs as they struggle to make ends meet. They are children distracted by hunger on the bus or in school with your children.
The CFSA is the pivotal agency for food distribution to the hungry in Newfoundland and in Labrador. From their St. John’s office and Mount Pearl warehouse, a five staff (with the help of hundreds of caring volunteers and community-minded businesses) manage the collection and distribution of food through 54 food banks to 27,000 children, women, and men throughout Newfoundland and Labrthe province.
