In an effort to raise awareness about the 1.3 million children in Canada who are food insecure, ONEXONE Chair and Co-Founder Joey Adler participated in a poverty campaign that involved sleeping on the streets. As a part of ONEXONE's partnership with Live Below the Line, Adler is joining the 1.2 billion people living in extreme poverty by only living on $1.75 a day. She recently chatted with Trend Hunter about her experience.
While hunger is a problem worldwide, Adler hopes to bring the issue home to Canada. For her, it's about education and removing the barriers that prevent access to it, including food insecurity.
She encourages people to take action by joining or donating to the poverty campaign. Every dollar ONEXONE raises goes to feeding a kid a healthy breakfast. You can also get involved in other local programs in your own communities.
