You've probably heard of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, but have you heard of Giving Tuesday?

Giving Tuesday is the kick-off to the holiday season of giving – it's a day to give back to back your community.

#GivingTuesday celebrates and encourages people to give their time, resources, talents and social media voice to a new kind of philanthropy that is about social purpose and collaboration for a better world.

The inaugural Giving Tuesday took place in the States last year and this year, it's coming to Canada. Hundreds of organizations and corporations are taking part in the movement to encourage donating, volunteering, and spreading the word about their favourite charities.

Support Meal Exchange On #GivingTuesdayCA


As you know, Meal Exchange is a small but mighty organization that can make your donation have a huge impact on improving food systems and increasing food security in communities across the country. Donating by credit card online is simple and secure. Or, click here to learn about other ways to donate.


Meal Exchange wouldn't exist without our volunteers. If you are a student who is interested in getting involved in the food movement on campus and in your community, check out what we do. If you live in Toronto, and would like to get involved in work at the national level, see what volunteer opportunities are available.

Tell People Why You Support MX

If you already a donor or volunteer, or just a great friend of ours, let others know! If you love social media, consider posting to Facebook or sharing a tweet with your MX story on December 3rd (be sure to use #GivingTuesdayCA). Or, you could be old school and tell the friends, family, peers and colleagues you see on December 3rd about Giving Tuesday and why you support Meal Exchange (no hashtag required!).

Whatever action you choose to take on Giving Tuesday, small or large – thank you! Our programs rely on the generosity of our donors, the hours and hours given by dedicated volunteers, and word of mouth introduction. Your help means we are one step closer to achieving a just and sustainable food system.
