Dear Friends,

Every day our member agencies serve clients like Raymond, who was forced to stop working after suffering a workplace injury. He is 61 years old. Since most of Ray’s monthly income goes toward rent, he relies on the food bank to stretch his food budget. For neighbours like Raymond, poverty and hunger continue to be heavy burdens – even in the sunny summer months.

But in the summer months, donations to the food bank drop off significantly. That is why we need generous neighbours like you to make this a Hunger-Free Summer.

You can help the thousands of individuals, families, and seniors who rely on the Food Bank by making a gift today.




Your gift for the month of July will ensure that hungry neighbours get the healthy food they need this summer.

Thank you for your ongoing support. We can’t achieve a Hunger-Free Summer without your help.

With thanks,




Chris Hatch, Executive Director

P.S. Just $40 is all it takes to provides 100 meals to neighbours in need this summer.
