Jennie Wilson gets emotional every time she talks about Hunger in Moose Jaw’s I Bought Lunch campaign.

“It always bother me when I think of a little kid being hungry. It makes life so much harder,” said Wilson, campaign co-ordinator for Hunger in Moose Jaw.

“Right now we feed 300 every day and that number was a lot lower at this time last year. So it climbed up pretty quickly this year. So the need is definitely still there. We’re really happy to do it. We’d also be happy not to have to do it.”
