Campbell’s Help Hunger Disappear is an international campaign to raise awareness about hunger, provide urgent hunger relief and empower individuals to ensure lasting hunger relief. Our team runs various campaigns throughout the year to raise food for our local food banks and raise awareness about hunger in our community.

In 2013 our Enactus Team was named National Runner Up in the Campbell’s Help Hunger Disappear Challenge for raising over 46,000lbs of food for our local food bank . This year Enactus Thompson Rivers & Help Hunger Disappear needs your help in achieving our goal of 60,000lbs food raised ($1 = 1 pound = 1 Can).

This year our goal is to raise 60, 000 pounds of food for our local food banks. We are also exploring new ways to empower individuals to overcome hunger permanently! It is because of your help that we are able to translate hunger awareness into action! Together, we are able to provide urgent hunger relief and empower those in need to defeat the cycle of hunger in Kamloops!

The Game:

Over this 4 week competition businesses are their own tribute, which will compete against each other to raise the most food possible. Companies can register in three categories of teams:

Companies can register in all sizes but to keep it fair for smaller teams, the numbers will be based on an average items raised per employee. Every Friday, the companies will send a weekly item count in to their Hunger Games representative (to be announced).

This year, we are adding in weekly challenges that will help us eradicate long-term hunger. If businesses participate in these challenges they will gain extra cans (points) for their team. These exciting challenges will be announced prior to the games!

A weekly video created with support by Mastermind Studios, will be put on YouTube, the Enactus website, and Enactus social media for the companies to check. This weekly video will have an update of the teams in the lead and the teams that are falling behind in the competition.

The Prize:

The competition commences on Monday March 3rd, 2014 and runs through until Friday, March 28th, 2014. Grand prize is bragging rights over all of the competing businesses, an office prize (to be determined) and the opportunity to help eradicate hunger in Kamloops.

The Results from Last Year! (2013)

In the First Annual Hunger Games the tributes raised 2171 items for the Kamloops Food Bank. This amount of food kept 25 people fed through the month of February in Kamloops. It was a great impact! And a great testament to the generosity of our community. We thank all tributes for their participation and hard work! Every little bit counts!

We would like to congratulate Findlays Vaccum and Sewing Machines! They raised a total of 347 items for the Kamloops Food Bank. A total of 86.75 items per employee.
