Trick or Eat

Trick or Eat

On Halloween night, 262 McMaster Students Scare up 4,412 pounds of food in an International Food Drive and Hunger Awareness Campaign!
AMAZING WORK!! The program was run through the McMaster Bread Bin campus food bank. Trick-or-Eaters collected food generously donated by Westdale/Ainslie Wood residents.

Nationally, Trick or Eat ran in fifty-eight communities on Halloween, with 5,835 youth raising enough food to provide 146,665 meals and an additional $22,537 in online donations. ‘As Meal Exchange’s most successful program, Trick or Eat is a phenomenal way for students and the community to work together to address local hunger. It showcases the role youth play in building strong communities and also provides them with experience so they can continue their role as active citizens.’ says Dave Kranenburg, Executive Director.

The Trick or Eat campaign began in 2001 at St. Thomas University in New Brunswick when a small group of students canvassed their neighborhood. Today, it runs in communities across the country and has now generated over $1.5 million worth of food, enough to provide 625,332 meals. It has the attracted the support of MuchMusic, TELUS and Canadian Pacific and is sure to continue to grow in the years to come. Hamilton sponsers this year were Kelsey’s, Vital Planet, Global Village and Fortinos.

After Trick or Eat, youth continue their involvement with Meal Exchange through a variety of initiatives that provide them with more leadership opportunities to address hunger in Canada. More information can be found at or by e-mailing [email protected]

Meal Exchange is a Canadian, student-founded, youth-driven, registered charity organized to address local hunger by mobilizing the talent and passion of students. Since 1993, its programs have been run by youth in over 60 communities across Canada, the United States and Australia. Combined, they have generated over $2 million dollars worth of food or 727,200 meals to address local hunger.

It was definitely a great time. My group got two whole shopping carts full of canned food! People living in the neighborhood who donated the food were really nice too, one lady donated a whole two bags filled with canned goods.
