Scare Hunger Away: Collecting Food For Others On Hallowen

Not all trick-or-treating is created equal. This Halloween, use an existing food supply and delivery system for a good cause; collect canned goods for your local food bank while you stockpile candy. Go door-to-door for non-perishables instead of miniature Snickers bars.

We Scare Hunger is Free The Children's annual campaign to fight local hunger. This Halloween, you can make a difference in the lives of some 850,000 Canadians who rely on food banks every month.

Check out this video to find out how you can get involved, and discover why there may be a do-gooding goblin at your door this Halloween.
