Using the power of data
to help in the fight against hunger
The more we can understand the reasons behind food bank use, the better we’ll be able to advocate for programs and policy recommendations to help those in need. That’s the power of data. Every key piece of information contributes to the ultimate goal of a Canada where no one goes hungry.
Expanding the use of Link2Feed across Canada
Approximately 65% of the food bank network is now using Link2Feed for client intake. Over the coming years, we’ll be working to expand its use across the country in order to build on the data available at the national level. Through that information, Food Banks Canada will be able to advocate for reducing food insecurity in a more robust and meaningful way.
