Can-Tribute is BBYO's teen-led hunger awareness and advocacy campaign, and your opportunity to put an end to the hunger epidemic.

BBYO members and teens around the world will make this a happy and healthy New Year for the less fortunate. Now, through November 2, we’re raising awareness about hunger and collecting canned food for those in need as part our Can-Tribute campaign! The culmination of the food drive will be at locally hosted, exclusive to BBYO, pre-screenings of
 The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2, where audience members will learn about hunger issues and ways to
continue to make a difference in their community.
