Although our main focus is on feeding starving children abroad, we also help children and their families within Canada. The recommendation we give to our food packaging centres (we call them "satellites") is to ship 2/3 of the packaged meals abroad and have 1/3 of them remain within the local community. Some of our satellites focus almost exclusively on helping children and their families in Canada, e.g. through outreach to inner city families, homeless people, First Nations, seniors, and children.
The main reason we are focusing on other countries in the first place is because even though you will find HUNGRY people within Canada, you generally won't find STARVING people. People in this country have food banks and other places to assist them, whereas kids in foreign countries do not.
