OUR VISION


A Canada where no one goes hungry.

ABOUT US

In collaboration with a supportive food bank network that spans coast-to-coast-to-coast, Food Banks Canada provides national leadership to relieve hunger today and prevent hunger tomorrow.

As a national charitable organization, we are dedicated to helping Canadians living with food insecurity by supporting a network of Provincial Associations; affiliate food banks; and food agencies that work at the community level to relieve hunger. Our work is focused on maximizing collective impact, strengthening local capacity, and reducing the demand for food banks until a day when they are no longer needed.

The Network

Food Banks Canada supports a network of 10 Provincial Associations and more than 500 affiliate food banks. We represent food banks in every province and territory and together, we serve approximately 85% of the people accessing food programs nationwide.

Provincial Associations and affiliate food banks benefit from their relationship with Food Banks Canada in a number of ways:

  • These organizations receive a fair share of large-scale food donations raised by us, proportionate to the number of people they serve.
  • They have access to the many grants and programs we offer.
  • The network also benefits from our other activities; such as the coordinated research that is originated by Food Banks Canada, along with the policy analysis we do to support our advocacy work to reduce hunger.
  • Provincial Associations and affiliate food banks have a voice in our organization through representatives who sit on our Network Council.
  • All of our Provincial Associations and affiliate food banks subscribe to the Ethical Food Banking Code developed by Food Banks Canada.

 If you operate a food bank or agency and are not yet an affiliate of the network, please contact your provincial food bank association to find out how you can strengthen your organization by joining us.
