You Provided More Healthy and Culturally Appropriate Food Than Ever Before

Last year, you made it possible to distribute 2,236,468 pounds of food across the city to feed your hungry neighbours by donating food valued at almost $5 million. That’s more food than we’ve ever distributed in a year — all thanks to you! 

But you are also making more healthy, culturally appropriate food available to your neighbours when they need it most. Almost half of the food that was distributed last year was fresh and frozen food items like meat, milk, fruits, and vegetables. That’s a 102% increase over the amount of fresh and frozen food distributed the year before! Thank you for ensuring your neighbours receive healthy options that reflect our city’s diversity when they visit the food bank.

Your support also made it possible to launch ReclaimFRESH; a new food rescue program that will partner with local grocery stores to prevent edible, healthy food from being thrown away prematurely and distribute these groceries to your hungry neighbours. In the next 4 years, we estimate the program will help source food for over 5 million meals for your hungry neighbours.



Thank you for everything you do. Read the full Annual Impact Report here
